A monument to Jones’ Cavalry Brigade is on South Reynolds Avenue just west of Gettysburg. (Tour map: South Reynolds Avenue) It is one of three monuments at that location for Confederate cavalry brigades who were not present on the battlefield but played a major role in the campaign.

A marker to the brigade is on the Fairfield-Orrtana Road seven miles west of Gettysburg. Here the brigade fought and annihilated the 6th United States Cavalry Regiment, which was attempting to attack Lee’s supply and ordnance trains in the army’s rear.
