Finding CSA State Monuments at Gettysburg

For each monument’s photograph, find its location on the map. (Or you could do it the other way around: For each map location, find the associated monument photograph.)

I am deliberately leaving this work to you as a learning exercise. As you interact with the maps, photographs, and above table, you will find yourself learning more about Gettysburg National Military Park.

Then bicycle south on West Confederate Avenue, and use the map to find each CSA state monument on Seminary Ridge. West Confederate Avenue offers a gentle, mostly shady ride on a double-wide, smoothly paved park road. There are two picnic areas and comfort facilities.
