More about this marker. This particular Georgia Regimental Monument, is part of a line of Georgia Regimental Monuments that runs perpendicular to the southern end of the Union line of Regimental Monuments that are situated north to south along the park's Poe Road.

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. According to the map it provides the, "numerical listing of all monuments, markers, and tablets on the Chickamauga Battlefield (using the Chick-Chatt NMP Monument Numbering System)."
