More about this marker. The historic marker is a four cornered, cut stone post, with a slightly angled, flat top, where the marker's text is inscribed into the stone's flat surface. Because the inscribed text was so weather worn, I had to contact the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park & Moccasin Bend National Archeological District of the National Park Service, and the park's historian, James H. Ogden, kindly provided me with the text written on this particular Missouri marker.
According to the description information provided by the National Park Service, the marker is, “A simple 15" x 15" x 3' marble shaft with a slanting inscribed top marking unit's position during the battle, November 25, 1863.”
