      NOTE 2./ Summary of the Battle of Cumberland Gap, Tenn. Sept. 8-10, 1863 in which William B Lock was captured:

      The Confederate garrison at Cumberland gap consisted of 2,500 men under the command of Brig.-Gen. John W. Frazer.

      Maj.-Gen. Ambrose E. Burnside, commanding the Department of Ohio, determined upon the reduction of the place and sent Brig.-Gen. J. M. Shackelford with his cavalry brigade to
      invest the south side of the gap. At the same time a new division of infantry, commanded by Col. J. F. De Courcy, was ordered to occupy the north side of the mountain.

      Shackelford reached his position at 8 a. m. on the 8th and immediately demanded the surrender of the garrison. This demand was refused and a few hours later De Courcy appeared on the north side of the gap and made similar demand.

      In the meantime Burnside himself, with Gilbert's brigade, Hascall's division, 23d corps, left Knoxville, and after a march of 60 miles in 52 hours joined the forces before the gap
      on the morning of the 9th.

      A third demand for the surrender of the garrison was now made and this time it was complied with, the entire Confederate force surrendering as prisoners of war.

      At the same time there fell into Burnside's hands 36 pieces of artillery, about 3,000 stands of small arms, large quantities of ammunition, commissary and quartermaster stores, etc.

      The occupation of Cumberland gap placed the Union forces in possession of all the important points in eastern Tennessee.
