The 23rd Pennsylvania Monument is located on Culp's Hill, Slocum Avenue at The Gettysburg National Military Park. It is a tribute to all the men of the 23rd Pennsylvania. It was dedicated on August 5th 1886 by the Survivors of the 23rd Pennsylvania Volunteers. The monument at that time was topped by a set of highly polished granite cannonballs. In 1888 the monument was rededicated and moved across the street. The State of Pennsylvania gave $1500.00 toward an upgrade and the 23rd Volunteers placed the likeness of a Birney Zouave at the top of the monument. (bio by: Frank P. Marrone Jr.)
