Text on the Back Side of the Monument:

This monument is erected by the State of Pennsylvania to her 77th Regiment of Infantry and marks the spot where it performed most important duty during a night engagement September 19th. 1863.

Colonel Thomas E. Rose, Commanding.

On the 18th of September the Regiment moved north along the crest of Lookout Mountain to Steven's Gap, descending into McLemore's Cove in front of the enemy. Early on the morning of the 19th, it moved rapidly north, passing Crawfish Springs to near the Kelly house, forming in line of battle thence moving eastwardly, and soon striking the enemy and driving him by severe fighting to this point. About 6:30 P.M. an attack was made upon its lines and a desperate struggle ensued, the enemy closing in on front and both flanks, till to distinguish friend from foe was impossible. At 9 P.M., overpowered by numbers, all the field officers, 7 company officers, and 70 of the men were taken prisoners.
Casualties: killed, wounded, and missing 140. Number engaged 270.
August 1st, 1861. Discharged January 16th, 1866.
