Position Marker for Dilger
Photographer: Craig Swain
Taken: June 28, 2008
Caption: Position Marker for Dilger's Battery
Additional Description: This marker stone next to the monument reads:
Left Battery I
1st O.L.A.
4 guns were posted
3 yds. in rear of
this tablet.

When this marker stone was made, the state and veterans were not sure where they would be allowed to place it. They left the location marking undone, saying "3 yards" with space for additional numbers. The intent was to reference one of the advanced locations of the battery. However the correction to the inscription was never completed.
