More about this marker. According to the description information provided by the National Park Service, the marker is, “A 1'6" x 1'6" x 3' high granite obelisk with a raised letter inscription. Marks regiment's position west of Kelly Field on September 20, 1863, at 10:00 a.m."

In locating 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 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).”
