of the entire brigade line. It captured three brass pieces, two of which were run to the rear by men of Dawson's Battery. In the engagement with Van Cleve's forces Carnes' Battery of Wright's Brigade which had been captured by S. Beatty's Brigade was recaptured by Brown's Brigade.

After severe fighting the Brigade was relieved by that of General Bate. Reforming in rear of Bate's line it changed front to the left to meet a reported advance of the enemy from that quarter, but was not further engaged during the 19th. At night it formed the front line of Stewart's Division and bivouacked in close proximity to the Union line.

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).”
