In the last grand offensive movement of Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, Fort Stedman, with adjacent works, was captured at 4:30 A.M., March 25, 1865, by a well selected body of Confederates, under the command of General John B. Gordon.

An advance was made with great determination, over the broken Union lines, then through the ravine, and up the rising ground to the eastward, for the purpose of cutting the U.S. Military R.R. and thus make successful the Confederate plan of severing the Army of the Potomac and destroying its base of supplies at City Point.

This movement was checked and the direct assault in the recapture of these embattlements, was made by the Third Division Ninth Corps Army of the Potomac, in whose memory this tablet is erected by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
