provided by the National Park Service, the monument is, “9'4" x 6'6" x 10' high, the monument has a rock-faced base and smooth-faced body with inscription. Projecting cornice incorporates bronze state seal, above which is a beaded molding and a rock-faced top.”

I used the "Chickamauga Battlefield" map, that I purchased at the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, Visitor Center, to determine both the monument number for this marker and the marker's location in relation to the rest of the park's monuments, markers, and tablets. According to the map it provides the, "numerical listing of all monuments, markers, and tablets on the Chickamauga Battlefield (using the Chick-Chatt NMP Monument Numbering System)."
