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. 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)."
Approximately 700 metal position and descriptive markers with raised lettering. Union markers are painted blue with white text; Confederate markers are painted white with red text. Most of these tablets and plaques have integrity of location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, feeling, and association to the historically significant period of Commemorative/Park Development (1895-1899).
