Culp's Hill Rehabilitation
The three-day Battle of Gettysburg transformed Culp's Hill. Evidence of its violent history still mark the landscape today. The breastworks, monuments, and memorials the veterans left behind are tangible links to the past. The remnant breastworks seen today do not resemble their wartime appearence but are instead 1880s reconstructions built on the original breastworks. The original alignment was retained as a permanent monument to the Union soldier's heroic labors and valor as they defended Culp's Hill.
We ask for your help in preserving these fragile resources. Please do not walk, climb upon, or otherwise disturb these remnant breastworks. Trails have
