SPECIAL ORDERS, HEADQUARTERS CHALMERS' DIVISION,
No. -. In the Field, November 27, 1864.

Inspector at Post :
CAPTAIN: I have the honor to report that, as yet, there is only one bat-
tery at this post; this is a howitzer battery of four brass pieces, com-
manded by Captain Thrall, from General Forrest's command. In con-
junction with this report I would respectfully suggest that, after an in-
spection of the works around this post (accompanied by Major Wintter,
chief engineer), it is my opinion that for military defense there should
be at least sixteen pieces of artillery in the works of the post-this is
the minimum amount that will be necessary for defense of the place-
and then not one-half the artillery positions will be occupied. These
guns should be of the following description: battery (4pieces) Parrotts,
1 battery (4 pieces) Napoleons, 2 batteries (8 pieces) howitzers; total,
4 batteries (16 pieces).
I would respectfully call the attention of the general commanding to
this statement, and request attention at earliest practicable moment.
I am, captain, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
J. W. ELDRIDGE,
Major, Commanding Artillery at Post.
