The marker text reads as follows:

"The Yellowstone Expedition of 1876 organized to quell the hostile Sioux marched from Fort Abraham Lincoln May 17, 1876 and passed within three fourths of a mile to the south of this marker on June 3, 1876."

"Between Sentinel Butte and Beach Custer's route runs parallel to this highway at a proximity of about one half mile continues in a due westerly direction and enters Montana two miles southwest of here."
