Inscription
(Front):
In these woods, during the Battle of the Wilderness on May 5 and 6, 1864, Vermont's "Old Brigade" suffered 1,234 casualties while defending the Brock Road and Orange Plank Road intersection.

(Back):
"The flag of each regiment, though pierced and tattered, still flaunts in the face of the foe, and noble bands of veterans with thinned ranks, and but a few officers to command, still stand by them, and they seem determined to stand so long as there is a man to bear their flag aloft or an enemy in the field."
Brigadier General Lewis A. Grant
brigade commander
