Marker series. This marker is included in the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, Missionary Ridge, and the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park: November 25, 1863 marker series.
Location. 35° 1.116′ N, 85° 15.883′ W. Marker is in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in Hamilton County. Marker is on South Crest Road south of South Crest Place, on the right when traveling south. Touch for map. In order to view this historical marker one must find a way to get to the crest of Missionary Ridge. The options to use in ascending Missionary Ridge are limited and difficult to locate if you are not familiar with the area. From downtown Chattanooga, I drove east to Missionary Ridge on Main Street, and using Main Street took me to the top of Missionary Ridge. Once at the top of Missionary Ridge I needed to make two right turns to get on South Crest Street and then go only a slight distance south to reach the Bragg Reservation, and then a short distance beyond the entrance to the National Military Park, on the right (west) side of South Crest Road, is where this historical monument is located. Marker is at or near this postal address: 195 South Crest Road, Chattanooga TN 37404, United States of America.

Regarding Sherman'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 Sherman's Brigade, all of them except for the 22nd Indiana have either a marker or a tablet for visitors to view. In
"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)."
