x 7'4" x 9'6", this rock-faced monument of Indiana oolitic limestone has a 2-step base, a rectangular shaft with inset inscribed smooth-faced panel & 2 state seals, crenellated cornice, and hipped top."

I used the "Chickamauga Battlefield" map, that I purchased at the Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, Visitor Center, to determine both the marker number for this tablet and the tablet'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).”
