The State of Wisconsin recognizes Dr. Porter's markers as part of Vernon County history but does not condone the language or prejudicial inferences used on some of the markers. Dr. Porter used descriptive, interpretative language which he researched and felt was acceptable for his time.
The marker is located on at a highway pull-off on westbound Hornby Hollow Road, west of its intersection with Wisconsin Highway 27 / 82, Liberty Pole (Viroqua), Wisconsin 54665.

These markers are also at this location:

 The renowned Liberty Pole Store,
just around the bend from the marker location.

The marker is located in Liberty Pole, Wisconsin.

The marker is located within the city boundaries of Viroqua, Wisconsin.
