The 19th Annual Ride for the Monuments from Harrisburg to Gettysburg is sponsored by the Alliance of Bikers Aimed Toward Education (A.B.A.T.E.). It supports the Pennsylvania Gettysburg Monuments Trust for maintenance and upkeep of more than 140 monuments and markers on the battlefield that memorialize the actions of Pennsylvania troops. A portion also benefits upkeep of the Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Association’s Historic Daniel Lady Farm. The Daniel Lady Farm, acquired in 1999 for restoration and preservation by the Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Association, played an important role in the three-day battle of Gettysburg. It served several roles during the battle, including being used as a Confederate field hospital.
Registration begins at 11 am outside the State Capitol Building’s East Wing followed by a welcoming ceremony at 12:15pm and ride departure at 1pm.
