On the morning of September 20th the Brigade was moved to this ground from its bivouac 500 or 600 yards to the left of this position and formed on the right of Brown's Brigade. At 9 o'clock Deshler's Brigade of Cleburne's Division moved up on the right of Bate, Wood's Brigade of that Division being thrown to the front of Bate. Soon after 11 o'clock Wood's troops were forced to retire and passed over Bate's Brigade to the rear.

In locating this tablet 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).”
