More about this marker. The historic marker is a four cornered, cut stone post, with a slightly angled, flat top, where the marker's text is inscribed into the stone's flat surface. Because the inscribed text was so weather worn, I had to contact the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park & Moccasin Bend National Archeological District of the National Park Service, and the park's historian, James H. Ogden, kindly provided me with the text written on this particular Missouri marker.
