Confederate Monuments at Gettysburg > State Monuments

The State of Alabama monument is south of Gettysburg on South Confederate Avenue.(39.786535° N, 77.254269° W; Google map; Monument map: South Confederate Avenue) It was dedicated in 1933 by the Alabama Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.

The monument was designed and sculpted by Joseph W. Urner of Maryland. It represents the Sprit of Alabama pointing the way forward while a wounded soldier passes a cartridge box to his comrade, representing the determination to continue the struggle.

The monument stands where General Evander Law’s Alabama Brigade began their assault toward Little Round Top on July 2nd after a grueling 18 mile approach march.

Alabama sent almost 6,000 men to Gettysburg with the Army of Northern Virginia. Of these, 2,249 became casualties. (see the States at Gettysburg)
