At 4 o'clock Samuel Beatty's Brigade with Dick's on its right, had been forced back to this position by Stewart's Division. With the assistance of the 9th Indiana, the 124th Ohio, and 41st Ohio of Hazen's Brigade they were able to make a brief stand, but at 4:30 the entire line was driven from position by Stewart's troops advancing from the front, and Johnson's Brigade of Johnson's Division from the right. The line was rallied west of the Dyer Field and bivouacked on the slope west of the Crawfish Springs Road.

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).”
