Text on the second tablet:


Early on the 20th the Brigade was posted on the east slope of the ridge west of the Crawfish Springs Road with the 39th Indiana mounted Infantry of Willich's Brigade on its left. Upon the attack of Hindman's Division, upon the Union troops near Widow Glenn's, Wilder charged, dismounted, upon Hindman's left flank, and forced the left of Manigault's Brigade back across the Lafayette Road. Subsequently the Brigade withdrew to the ridge west of the Crawfish Springs Road, and later to Chattanooga Valley, where it covered the withdrawal of troops and transportation to Chattanooga.

Casualties during the battle: killed 13; wounded 94; captured or missing 18; total 125.
