Location. 35° 8.862′ N, 88° 20.6′ W. Marker is near Shiloh, Tennessee, in Hardin County. Marker can be reached from Cavalry Road 0.6 miles west of Hamburg-Savannah Road, on the right when traveling west. Touch for map. This marker is 0.1 mile east (and very slightly north) of the 13th Iowa campsite marker. It is in the woods east of Jones Field. There is no trail leading to it. It's probably best to look for it when the leaves are down. If you walk east in the woods from the campsite marker, bear slightly to the left. You'll be on a relatively level ridgetop. The marker is at the northeast edge of the ridge, just before it starts to drop off sharply. Marker is in this post office area: Shiloh TN 38376, United States of America.
