The New York State Monument located just north of today's Visitor Center. One-fourth of the Union army at Antietam was from New York. Costing $30,000, the monument was dedicated September 17, 1920, on the 58th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam. The bronze tablets list the generals from New York who were in command, the New York regiments and batteries at Antietam and the New York State coat of arms. It is the tallest monument on the field, approximately 58 feet high.
