More about this marker. Although this marker appears to be very similar to the MT-numbered markers in the nearby National Military Park, it is not. According to the National Military Park historian, Jim Ogden, this marker was erected in either 1910 or 1911, and it is not part of the National Military Park's system of monuments, markers, and tablets.
He went on to state that the 84th Indiana Regimental Veteran's Association, "did offer to donate it and the small parcel of land that it does or used to sit on to the National Military Park but at the May, 1911, meeting of the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park Commission, the Commission did not accept the offer because the Commission had no legislative authority to accept land or features in that area."
