The Army of the Potomac at Gettysburg was made up of regiments and batteries from eighteen northern states (Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky and Missouri had no units at Gettysburg) as well as a large contingent from the United States Regular Army. (see the States at Gettysburg) Almost every one of the several hundred Union regiments and batteries that were at the Battle of Gettysburg is represented by a monument, usually funded and dedicated by its state.

A unit's main monument was required to be placed at the location of its main line of battle. Many have a secondary monument or smaller markers showing different locations where the unit fought.

Some regiments from the same state share a monument. In a few cases a monument honors an entire brigade of regiments from the same state. Some states have erected a monument honoring all the men from that state who fought at Gettysburg. There are also a small number of monuments honoring units who played an important part in the campaign but were not actually on the field at Gettysburg.
