Additional comments.
1. Two 140th Pennsylvania Monuments
This monument, erected in 1885, was paid for and placed by the veterans of the regiment. About five years later when the State of Pennsylvania allocated state funds for regimental monuments at Gettysburg, a second, larger monument was placed just south. See related markers.
