Johnson to prepare to attack the enemy on Missionary Ridge. Moving forward in two lines with the general advance, it took the rifle-pits near the foot of the ridge, and charged for the summit. The right of the brigade was at first repulsed, but a rifle-pit half way up being carried by the 42nd Indiana, the 104th Illinois, and the 88th Indiana, forming the left of the brigade, the whole line advanced to the summit.

Regarding Carlin's Brigade. While this tablet identifies both the location and role played during the military action of this particular Brigade, as well as listing the regimental units that make up this Brigade, not all of its listed regiments have individual markers and/or tablets for the park visitor to view. So of the regiments listed for Carlin's Brigade, all of them except for the 10th Wisconsin have either a marker or a tablet for visitors to view. In explaining this, the NPS staff state the following,
"There is no indication that there ever were bronze tablets (for this unit)...the answer to that question is probably another that would have to be addressed to whatever records survive in the ... state archives respectively (since it was the states that were responsible for providing the unit commemorative features)."
