Rutledge's Tennessee Light Artillery BatteryCaptain Arthur M. Rutledge's Tennessee Light Artillery Battery was organized in Davidson County, Tennessee. Rutledge was a West Point graduate who went on to become the Chief of Ordnance in Polk's Army of Mississippi. Rutledge's Tennessee Light Artillery Battery had six guns — four six-pounders and two howitzers. Rutledge's command was originally slated to move into Virginia as a part of the Cheat Mountain campaign but in September 1861, it received new orders to join General Felix Zollicoffer at Cumberland Ford.
