About the monument

The main wall of the curved granite monument is completely covered with the names of New York officers who commanded brigades, divisions and army corps at the Battle of Gettysburg, as well as a listing of all New York regiments and batteries and their commanders. A pedastal at the center of the monument is faced by the Seal of the State of New York and capped with an American Eagle, the tip of whose outstretched wings stands 21 feet above the granite walkway. A bench seat runs along the base of the wall. The monument was dedicated on September 9, 1925.
