More about this marker. 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)”.

According to the National Park Service, the marker was created in 1895. It is construction out of granite and is a simple rectangular slab measuring 1'6" x 1' x 3'. The slanted tops carries a raised letter inscription. Marks unit's position at 11:00 a.m. on September 20, 1863.
