Inscription.  
Veterans of the 7th Georgia Infantry selected Manassas Battlefield as the site of their annual reunion in 1905. During their visit the group erected seven marble markers to denote the different positions occupied by the regiment at both battles. All seven were located on or near Henry Hill. Most of these memorial markers vanished over the last century. This is one of only two markers to survive on the field.
