On November 24, 1863, at the time of the fighting for Lookout Mountain, all of which took place on the side of the mountain, not the top, this position along the West Brow was held by the 18th and 20th Tennessee Infantry. Composed largely of men from Davidson, Rutherford and Williamson Counties, the two regiments were combined after the Battle of Chickamauga.

This marker stands on the Tennessee-Georgia line, which was surveyed in 1817 by a party of representatives of both states.
