Preservation work on the Virginia Memorial at Gettysburg National Military Park began Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2022, and is expected to conclude by Sept. 30, 2022. This project will ensure a lasting professional patination closely approximating the original patination, in recipe, color, depth and longevity.

The immediate grass circle around the memorial will be closed during the project. The circle drive around the memorial is expected to remain open with intermittent closures to facilitate the work and visitor safety. West Confederate Avenue will remain open at all times.
