At 10:30 a.m., Nov. 25th, this Brigade marched from Lookout Mountain for Rossville as the head of Hooker's column. It was delayed about three hours at Chattanooga Creek by the burning of a bridge. About 4 p.m., assisted by Williamson's Brigade on its left, with the 27th Missouri as skirmishers, it forced its way through the Gap, which was defended by a part of Clayton's Brigade with four guns, and turned north along the eastern base of the Ridge, finally charging obliquely to the summit, capturing many prisoners, and bivouacking here.

Location. 35° 1.16′ N, 85° 15.771′ Click for map. In order to view this historical marker one must find a way to get to the crest of Missionary Ridge. The options to use in ascending Missionary Ridge are limited and difficult to locate if you are not familiar with the area. From downtown Chattanooga, I drove east to Missionary Ridge on Main Street, and using Main Street took me to the top of Missionary Ridge. Once at the top of Missionary Ridge I needed to make two right turns to get on South Crest Street and then go only a slight distance south to reach the Bragg Reservation which is where this historical marker is located. Once you have entered the Bragg Reservation you will find this historical marker along the eastern border of the Bragg Reservation, across the street from a residential complex. Marker is in this post office area: Chattanooga TN 37404, United States of America.
