Regarding Cleburne's Brigade. Cleburne's brigade divided as it charged into the muddy ravine of Shiloh Branch. Cleburne tried to lead directly through the morass, and was thrown from his horse. Most of his brigade went north toward Buckland's position (Army of the Tennessee, 5th Div., 4th Brigade) at Shiloh Church, but as noted on the marker, the 6th Mississippi went to the right into Rhea Field where they engaged with Hildebrand's brigade (Army of the Tennessee, 5th Div., 3rd Brigade).
