More about this marker. The historical marker is a four cornered, cut stone post, with a slightly angled, flat top, where the marker's text is inscribed into the stone's flat surface. Because the inscribed text was so weather worn, I did a paper rubbing of the marker's surface to help to enable me to read it.

According to the description information provided by the National Park Service, the monument is, “A simple 15" x 15" x 3' marble shaft with a slanting inscribed top marking unit's position during the battle, November 25, 1863.”
