To reach this monument:
Paved pullout at the Brotherton Cabin.
From the Brotherton Cabin proceed due south along the line of Union Monuments and Markers in the Brotherton Field. When you get to the near end of this line of Monuments and Markers turn west and take the trail that leads to the woods at the western edge of Brotherton Field. Just into the woods you should find the marker for one of Sirwell's Brigade's regiments, the 37th Indiana Volunteer Infantry. From this Monument, find the trail that leads deeper into the woods and about 100 feet down the trail you will find this marker, which marks the position of the 21st OVI just prior to the Confederate attack on the morning of September 20th.
