Finding USA 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 north on Hancock Avenue and into Ziegler’s Grove. Enter Soldiers’ National Cemetery (park and lock your bicycle). Visit the Indiana State Monument on a separate tour of the Culp’s Hill area.
