Hindman's Division - Polk's Corp's.
Major General Thomas C. Hindman.

September 20, 1863, 1 p.m.

Anderson's Brigade -- Brigadier General Patton Anderson.
Deas' Brigade -- Brigadier Zach C. Deas.
Manigault's Brigade -- Brigadier Arthur M. Manigault.

Anderson's and Deas' Brigades of this Division, pursuing Davis' and Sheridan's troops, reached the high ground west of this position soon after noon, the disorganized forces of the Union right wing continuing to fall back towards McFarland's Gap. These brigades moved from this position to their right and rear and joined General Johnson's Division at the Vittetoe House shortly before 3 p.m., where also Manigault's Brigade, moving forward again from the vicinity of Viniard's, rejoined the division. In the advance of this position Hindman's Division captured a large number of prisoners and guns, from Sheridan's and Davis' Divisions.

General W.H.Lytle, commanding a brigade was killed while rallying his troops a short distance south of the Dyer House.

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 marker number for this tablet and the tablet'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).”
