Inscription on the rear of the monument:

Organized at Camp Morrow, Portsmouth, Ohio, August 27th, 1861, Joshua W. Sill, Colonel, Oscar F. Moore, Lieutenant Colonel, Joshua V. Robinson, Major.

The Regiment on September 19th, 1863, with its Brigade, was engaged about a mile a little South of East of this position, first with Wilson's Brigade, and then with Liddell's Division, taking some prisoners. About 12:00 M., after the withdrawal of those troops, it was struck by Jackson's Brigade of Cheatham's Division, and was forced to retire and was not rallied until it reached the State Road, where being reformed, it advanced with the Brigade to the left of General Johnson's Command, near Reed's House, and took part in the night fight.

September 20th, it occupied this position throughout the battle, repulsing all assaults upon its front. Near sundown, while attempting to execute the order to retire, while an attack of the enemy was in progress, a portion of the regiment was captured. Loss 160.
