Gettysburg Confederate State Monuments
This post contains two short, anonymous quizzes and an invitation to take a deeper dive at the end. Please look at this as an opportunity to PLAY. I invite you to play around with these quizzes in whatever way that you want — and learn-by-doing. That’s it. No one is watching.
In other words, the quizzes in this article are educational tools, and you are the tool master. It doesn’t matter whether you answer all of the questions correctly on your first try or whether it takes multiple tries. The quizzes serve you, not the other way around.
Beginner Quiz – What State Monument?
This isn’t a traditional quiz, because you only need to think about a question and think about a one-word answer. Easy!
Instructions: First, study each photo and think about what Union state it might represent. Then hover over the photo and read its caption. (On a mobile device, lightly touch and hold the image). If you want to enlarge the image, simply click the photo.
It’s not as hard as you might think. Look carefully at the photos and guess what state is honored by what monument.
Answers: The answers are in the photo captions, above.
Intermediate Quiz – Know Your Confederate States
Here is an accordion-style quiz. Remember, it’s not about knowing the answer (most people won’t know any of these). It’s about learning something new.
Instructions: Read the question, think whether you might know the answer, and regardless, click on the question to uncover the answer.
It might help to remember this list of eleven Confederate state monuments at Gettysburg National Military Park: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia.
Answers: The answers are below the questions.

Wrap-Up – Gettysburg Confederate State Monuments
Sometimes, it helps to drill the basics. This post provides a safe place to click around and learn without having to worry about a teacher grading your performance. Here, you are your own teacher! Civil War Cycling simply offers you tools to use.
On the other hand, it’s no fun for drilling to be your only approach to learning. That’s why we also bicycle battlefields, enjoy photos, have conversations, read books, and tour museums!
