MONUMENT TEXT
Title
"A Final Tribute"

"More than 3,000 Marylanders served on both sides of the conflict at the Battle of Gettysburg. They could be found in all branches of the army from the rank of private to major general and on all parts of the battlefield. Brother against brother would be their legacy, particularly on the slopes of Culp's Hill. This memorial symbolizes the aftermath of that battle and the war. Brothers again, Marylanders all."

"The State of Maryland proudly honors its sons who fought at Gettysburg in defense of the causes they held so dear."
