HEADQUARTERS DEPARTMENT OF THE CUMBERLAND.
Stevenson, August 20, 1863.
The general wishes to know if we cannot place a battery on the island opposite Bridgeport, and stop the use of the river road by the rebels.
R. S. THOMS,
HEADQUARTERS THIRD DIVISION,
Stevenson, August 20, 1863-10 p.m.
Captain R. S. THOMS, Aide-de-Camp:
I doubt very much whether a battery on the island would stop the river road. A battery opposite Shellmound will stop the cars from running, and probably the travel on the dirt road.
