J. A. Garfield (search for this): chapter 10
This examination of Cumberland Gap confirms the opinion given in a former letter that the place is very strong if attacked from the north side, and can only be carried by a large force with a heavy loss of life, but it can be readily reduced by having a good force attack simultaneously on the south side, or, better still, by an investment, which would soon starve them out. I would suggest that another battery, with heavier rifled guns, could be advantageously used on this line. If General Garfield could march down from Pikeville through Virginia with his force and attack on south side or cut off supplies, I do not think the rebels could remain there long. I forward herewith a rough sketch of the Gap and their works. I have ordered up the Thirty-third Indiana Regiment. Respectfully, &c., S. P. Carter, Acting Brigadier-General, Twelfth Brigade,. Capt. J, B. Fry, Assistant Adjutant-General, Chief of Staff. No. 2.-report of Maj. Gen. E. Kirby Smith, C. S. Army.
