More about this marker. This marker is situated north of the roadway, several minutes walk away from the trailhead, just off a primary walking trail, in the woods. This marker shows the position of this section of artillery in the action described on the nearby VanDerveer's Brigade tablet MT-645B.
In locating this tablet 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).”
