U.S. Army really should not be here because it had to stop on the line Karlovy Vary - Plzen - Czech Budejovice.

In 1970, a memorial to the battle, designed by Václav Hilský, was unveiled in Slivice (visit link) . Czech military history clubs, the Museum in Príbram and the Army of the Czech Republic have organized reenactments of the battle since 2001.
