More about this marker. This historical marker features Hazen's Brigade of the Union army, but it makes mention of the 28th Alabama of the Confederate army. Apparently, at one point time, there was a historical marker that featured the 28th Alabama that was situated across the street from the residence at 205 North Orchard Knob Avenue, however, according to the occupant of that said residence, that historical marker was hit and destroyed by a car many years ago and the marker has never been repaired or replaced since that unfortunate event. I have included a picture of the yard across the street from 205 North Orchard Knob Avenue where the historical marker for the 28th Alabama was once located.

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 Hazen's Brigade, all of them except for the 6th Indiana, 5th Kentucky, 6th Kentucky, & 23rd Kentucky 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 these units)...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).”
