Text on the Second Tablet:


The Brigade formed on this line early September 20th, and constructed log works in its front. The Confederates attacked soon after 10 A.M. and after an hour's fighting were repulsed. After the break in the center of the Union line near Brotherton's the right of the Brigade was thrown to the rear and faced south. E.A. King's Brigade on its right being still further withdrawn and faced toward Poe's and the LaFayette road. About 5 P.M. the Brigade withdrew, marching north on the LaFayette road to the north side of the Kelly field, where it filed to the left, and facing north charged through the fields south and west of McDonald's
upon the flank of Liddell's Division, which had crossed the LaFayette road at that point from the east.
