Army of the Cumberland


Text from the back side of the Monument:

The Ninth Pennsylvania Veteran Volunteer Cavalry,
Lieutenant Colonel Roswell M. Russell, commanding.

Held the upper fords of the Chickamauga on the 19th and 20th of September 1863, on the right of the Line of Battle in the vicinity of Crawfish Springs until 3 o'clock P.M. of the 20th, when it was ordered on the old Chattanooga road to find and open communications with General Sheridan. The regiment left the battlefield about sunset, September 20th, its rear guard repulsing an attack of cavalry, while covering the forces falling back on that line. It entered Chattanooga on the morning of the 22nd, taking a position in advance of the intrenchments then being thrown up. It forded the Tennessee River about 5 o'clock P.M. under fire of the enemy's batteries on Missionary Ridge, and went into camp opposite the city.
