The monument to the 96th Pennsylvania Volunteers is south of Gettysburg on Wheatfield Road.

The regiment spent much of the battle holding the line lying in the muddy low ground around Plum Creek. The monument remembers this with a carved footprint in the “mud” next to the prone soldier, only visible from above the monument.

The 96th Pennsylvania was commanded at the Battle of Gettysburg by Major William H. Lessig. It brought 356 men to the field and lost 1 man wounded.

It was dedicated in 1888 by the State of Pennsylvania.

    I am very pleased my 96th Pa. Monument. It is an accurate and detailed replica of the original. A real collectors item that any Civil War fan will love. Very easy to purchase and delivery was prompt. I highly recommend it.
