Some monuments at Gettysburg dominate their surroundings. The Pennsylvania monument is probably the grandest of these. And its no wonder, as the battle was fought within its borders and many of its sons were lost. Here, however, the monument's light stone begins to blend into the sky.

Other monuments are smaller, commemorating one life or the position of one regiment. This one, located in Devil's Den, takes on the colors and shapes of the surrounding rocks.

And some, like this one in the National Cemetery, seem to be keeping silent watch.
