Text from the back side of the monument:

On the morning of Sept. 18th, 1863, this regiment with its brigade, met the advance of Bushrod Johnson's Column on the east slope of Pea Vine Ridge, successfully delaying for ten hours the crossing at Reed's Bridge of a largely superior force of the enemy's infantry and artillery: thus materially contributing toward the defeat of the Confederate design to crush the left wing of the Union Army. Sept. 19th guarded the movement of trains to Chattanooga. Sept. 20th successfully engaged the enemy at Red House Bridge on the Ringgold Road. On the 21st and 22nd assisted in covering the movement of the army to Chattanooga.
