View, looking north, of the backside of the "Johnson's Brigade" tablet (foreground/right) and the "Bate's Brigade" tablet (center), and in the distant background is the "79th Indiana Infantry" monument.
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).”
