Park Service, the marker is a, “D & L Tablet at 570 North Crest Road."

For years I have been visiting the Missionary Ridge Battlefield, driving back and forth along the length of North and South Crest Roads, searching for markers and tablets, and I have been missing this Distance and Location Tablet completely. It wasn't until I recently obtained a copy of this tablet's entry on the "List of Classified Structures" that I had a specific address to use in assisting me in my search of missing markers, that I was able to locate this particular marker.

Note: the address for this tablet's location that is provided by the National Park Service is 570 North Crest Road, while the actual location is at 560 North Crest Road. This probably is the result of property lines having shifted some over the many years since when this information was originally recorded.
