Humphreys' Battery at Murfreesboro

I am resaerching and writing a book on the battle of Murfreesbro/Stone's River. At this time I am concentrating on McNair's brigade, McCown's division.

Captain Humphreys' report in the Official Records indicates that his battery was armed with six guns, of which at least one section, and perhaps two, were 3-inch rifles, and a third section of 6-pounder smoothbores. I would appreciate confirmation on the exact armament, please cite source.

Any details on Humphreys' battery at Murfreesboro, other than those reported in the Official Records, would be most appreciated.

My Thanks and GOD's Blessings,
Lanny Smith
