The bronze tablet on this marker (#13) reads:

Shackleford commanding 14th Ill. Cav., First Ky. Cav., 9th Mich. Cav., 11th Mich. Bat'y, 86th Ohio Mounted Inf., 2d Tenn. Mounted Inf. and Steubenville Militia.
Tablet No. 12 Erected July 1913

This tablet was removed from another marker (#12), located about ? of a mile south. The correct tablet, which has been missing for many decades, should read:

Gen. John H. Morgan in command of Confederate Troops passed through Nebo Hamlet, located here, July 26, 1863; proceeded northward via Yellow Creek and Nebo-Lisbon roads to Monroeville pursued by Gen. James M. Shackleford commanding 14th Ill. Cav., First Ky. Cav., 9th Mich. Cav., 11th Mich. Bat'y, 86th Ohio Mounted Inf., 2d Tenn. Mounted Inf. and Steubenville Militia.
Tablet No. 13 Erected July 1913
