Being relieved about 9:30 a.m. by troops of Wood's division on the line west of Brotherton's the brigade advanced to this position and formed to check the advance of troops of Breckinridge's division. The latter after severe fighting and driving Beatty's brigade from position was at first checked and then repulsed General Adams commanding brigades being wounded and captured. Subsequently Stanley's brigade which had been considerably scattered by its serious engagement with the divisions of Breckinridge and Liddell was gathered by its officers and retired to Snodgrass Ridge.

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)."
