The view to the west from the roof of the Pennsylvania Monument looks across Hancock Avenue and the headwaters of Plum Run. In the distance the fence lines along Emmitsburg Road can be made out, along with as the white farmhouse and red barn of the Klingle farm buildings. The trees in the far distance are on Seminary Ridge, the Confederate starting positions on July 2 and 3.

On the far side of Hancock Avenue from left to right are monuments to the 4th United States Artillery, Battery C, flanked by two 12-pounder Napoleons, the monument to the 1st Regular Brigade of the Artillery Reserve of the Army of the Potomac, and the monument to the 9th Michigan Battery, flanked by two 3″ Ordnance Rifles.
