More about this marker. It is only my impression, but it almost appears as if the original text on this tablet was removed and some make-do basic information was added to a do-over, bare bones, tablet.

According to the description information provided by the National Park Service, the marker is a, “3' x 2' bronze inscription tablet with decorative border mounted on low marble pedestal. Describes the unit's activities on November 25, 1863.”
