The 54th Pennsylvania Memorial was dedicated by members of the regimental association on 25 October 1905. It was funded jointly by the association and the Keystone State and placed on a small plot donated for the purpose. Title to the land was transferred from Pennsylvania to the Battlefield Park in ceremonies on 19 September 1984.
