Gen. Nathan B. Forrest and his CSA troops bivouacked after Battle of Paducah, March 25, 1864. Forrest moved to Mayfield next day where he paroled his men in order that they could visit their homes in western Kentucky and Tennessee.

This memorial was sponsored by the Paducah Chapter 341, United Daughters of the Confederacy. The stone was donated and erected by the Paducah Granite Company in 1969.
