The 7th Indiana was commanded at the Battle of Gettysburg by Colonel Ira G. Grover, a lawyer and state legislator from Greensburg. It had 437 men on the field on July 3rd, of whom 2 were killed, 5 wounded and 3 missing. The 7th Indiana had been left behind at Emmitsburg on July 1st to guard the corps trains with orders to wait until relieved by one of Brigadier General Stannard's Vermont regiments. By 10 a.m. no relief had arrived, but Colonel Grover decided to leave for the front anyway. On the way word came of the battle and the regiment hurried its march, reaching the battlefield in the early evening. They were posted on the north side of Culp's Hill, going into line next to the survivors of the Iron Brigade.  This strong and fresh regiment added greatly to the security of Culp's Hill that evening. Col. Grover was later brought before a court martial for abandoning his post guarding the trains, but was exonerated.

The monument to the Seventh Indiana Volunteer Infantry Regiment is southeast of Gettysburg on Culp's Hill, just north of the parking area.  The monument is carved from Quincy granite and stands 8 feet tall. The front, which faces into the woods and away from the parking area, has the full moon symbol of the First Corps at the top of the column. The Seal of the State of Indiana is on the side of the monument facing the parking lot and three stacked muskets are on its east side. (The bison on the state seal is just one of a variety of animals depicted on Gettysburg monuments.)  This image shows that the monument has a granite cannonball affixed at top, which is now missing.
