Went into battle about one o'clock P.M., September 19th in the woods near Brotherton's. Vigorously engaged most of the afternoon when it moved near the Poe Field.
Morning of the 20th assigned position where this monument stands and assisted in holding it against fierce assaults by the enemy, until near noon, when it was moved to a new line formed south of the Kelly Field, from which it helped to drive the enemy. About 6 o'clock by order of General Thomas, this regiment reported to General Brannan at Snodgrass Hill. After the fighting was over, about 8 o'clock P.M., was ordered from the field.

More about this marker. I used the "Chickamauga Battlefield" map, that I purchased at the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, Visitor Center, to determine both the monument number for this marker and the marker's location in relation to the rest of the park's monuments, markers, and tablets.
