After all of these years of fearing the climb to the top, I finally did it. It's a spiral staircase but it was no problem, at all. The view of the battlefield makes it worth the climb

This is a very large monument in the park. One of the few you can climb up. Beautiful monument to stop and check out if you have time.

This was a special monument, especially since the war was fought during a serious and pivotal moment in Gettysburg, PA. So many lives lost and many innocent young men and woman.

The Pennsylvania Monument is the largest monument on the battlefield at Gettysburg. One highlight is the view from the roof, accessed by interior stairs. Whether you want to see where much of the action took place from a bird's eye view, or just want to...More

This monument was beautiful and the biggest one in the battlefield. We stopped by to see it, since our guide told us the granite stone came from Mount Airy, NC.
