From the front of the monument:



The 82nd Ohio Infantry, arriving from Emmittsburg at noon, July 1, 1863, moved rapidly to the support of Dilger’s Battery near the Carlisle Road. At 3 p.m. changed front to the right and advanced to a position 125 yards in front of this monument, where, exposed both front and flank to a severe fire, it engaged the enemy then approaching from York. After an obstinate struggle, the regiment being outflanked on both sides, withdrew to Cemetery Hill, where it remained until the close of the battle.
