More about this marker. I recently noticed that on the Blog entitled "Battlefield Wanders" the following comment was made on March 11, 2008, in a discussion concerning the viewing of markers up on Missionary Ridge in general, and of this marker in particular: "One of my favorite oddities is this house. The two markers on either side of the driveway are for the right of Hindman's Division and the left of Cheatham's Division. I'd love to live here, then I'd tell people that I live at the junction of Hindman's and Cheatham's Divisions. Non Civil War people might never find the house but my friends would know in an instant, or at least need to consult a book before, finding my house."
