Inscription:
Beatty's Brigade
Van Cleve's Division - Crittenden's Corps.
Brigadier General Samuel Beatty.
September 19, 1863, 4 p.m.

79th Indiana, Colonel Frederick Kneeler.
9th Kentucky, Colonel George H. Cram.
17th Kentucky, Colonel Alexander M. Stoutt.

At 4 o'clock Samuel Beatty's Brigade with Dick's on its right, had been forced back to this position by Stewart's Division. With the assistance of the 9th Indiana, the 124th Ohio, and 41st Ohio of Hazen's Brigade they were able to make a brief stand, but at 4:30 the entire line was driven from position by Stewart's troops advancing from the front, and Johnson's Brigade of Johnson's Division from the right. The line was rallied west of the Dyer Field and bivouacked on the slope west of the Crawfish Springs Road.
