Stovall's Brigade, being the center of Breckinridge's Division, advanced from a line 400 yards east of this position at 9 o'clock a.m. with Adams' Brigade on its right, and Helm's on its left. From this line it advanced to the LaFayette Road, encountering a portion of John Beatty's Brigade of Negley's Division, and forcing it across the road. The Brigade then changed direction to face south, and, with Adams' Brigade west of the road, and on its right advanced toward the Kelly field.

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).”
