Inscription.  On the evening of May 1, 1863, Lt. Col. George Edgar moved to block Union troops marching to Lewisburg. Establishing lines at Tuckwiller's hill, Edgar caught the enemy by surprise under cover of darkness early on the 2nd, and reportedly feigned orders to imaginary troops to conceal his inferior numbers. After a skirmish of 15-20 minutes, Union forces withdrew in defeat.
