The monument is made of Ohio sandstone, the only use of that type of stone at Gettysburg. Unfortunately, the soft stone is weathering heavily. Bronze inscription plates were added in 1989 to replace lettering that had eroded so badly as to be difficult to read.
The 55th Ohio Infantry was commanded at the Battle of Gettysburg by Colonel Charles B. Gambee. It brought 375 men to the field.
