Turn toTrour'map.. -Tod will see that the Tennessee and Cumberland rivers run through the otato of Kentucky aide and side, like 'twin slaters. They empty Into the Ohio toot' far apart. They come near together first Inside the 'Tennessee- 1ine,~ and -flow through that Mate close beside each other. The' Tennessee forms part of the boundary between the two states for some distance. On the Ten- aes»o>Si<Je5 Just opposite where the corner of KwitucJtyteegtni, was Fort Henry. I Twelve mOe» across 'from it, slightly north of east, was "Fort Donelson, on the Cumberland. Henry was on the right bank of the Tennessee, while Donelson was on tba left bank of the Cumberland. HKNHT AND DOKEL8OS. "Benry and Dbnelson were Important Confederate stations.' 'Henry was captured Feb. 8, 1603. A rising young brigadier, general, named Ulysses 8. Grant, was at the head of tho force that took it. The victory called'for the first Wtna the attention of the country to this officer'. !iThe victory at Fort Henry, too, was, strictly speaking, the beginning of the turning of the tide In favor of the north, A gloom like the fog of a winter's day had been on the country till then. Men hi the north wore sighing for a hen>—a man who should be strong enough to take the head of affairs and turn heart sickening failure Into victory. The hero was developing, though they knew It not He who was to lift tho cloud was tbo silent man that, even in the midst of thB victory ot Port Donelson, was ''too busy to write a word." A notable point is the shortness of Grant's dispatches at all times.-, A few meesagesjfcf not many linos, to bis superior officer tell tho rtbry' of both Henry and Donelson. Gen. HaHecli, then at Bfc Louis, was In command of'tho''department of the Missouri Grant dispatched Halieck, Feb. 0,- that ,Fort Honry hod fallanf; 'He'addod these'-words: " "I stiall take and destroy Fort Donelson on tha 8th nnd return to Fort Henry." But be bod undertaken a larger contract than even ho could fill lathe time ha proposed. Tha freshets and overflows,! which always work-such mischief In the south and westj prevented, for one .thing.-. The roods leading to Donclson were a sea of mud By the backwater of creeks on each side of the fort there was a sea of water two miles inland from the fort The Cumberland runs north at the point soloctod for Fort Donolson. About a mile •outh of the fort, up the river, Is tha little town of Dover. This hamlet was the headquarters of tha Confederate general, Gideon J. Pillow, during the siege. It was in Dover that the lost Confederate council of war between Gens. Floyd, Pillow, Buokner,' Cot N. B. Forrest and others took place, previous to the surrender of the fort to Grant Below Fort Donelson, on the north, Hlckman's creek emptied Into the Cumberland.- It was overflowed for mlloa, the water up to a horse's breast. Grant could not attack the fort from that side. On the other hand, however, In case tho Confederates, being hard pressed, wished to make a sally out from the fort and escape by tho Fort Henry road, as, in fact, they did wish to do, this overflowed W**li? would prevent them; * So, on the whole, the backwater of Hickman's creek -was an advantage to both besieger and besieged. Above Fort Douolsou, and between that and Dover, was another stream ot water, Indian creek, also overflowed. Mud I There was never anything, like it It was "half leg dcop," as specially mentioned in Confederate official dispatches. Grant's soldiers fairly waded in mud "up to their eyes" whon they marched from Fort Honry to be- llego Dover and Donelson. It flew from the horses' hoofs like rain and peppered man and beast, whan the cavalry splashed hither and thither, in the vain fancy that they were trotting. It rolled from the gun carriage wheels and fell in huge masses at every turn the artillery made. It must bo romnmbored that it was Grant, brigadier general, who had urged the reduction of Forts Honry and Doueltton. .The ob- joot to bo gained by it was the clearing of. the Cumberland and Tennessee rivora, and tbo occupation of Tennessee and its lines of railway. Grant was at Cairo and; repeatedly- Urged Halleck to lot him visit St.' Ixxila. Leave was at length given. Grout visited his superior and began to unfold big' plan for the capture of tha two forte. But Hallook Mleqota- him at once and snubbed him. Wlarply. Judge Force, In his book, says that Grant "returned to Cairo believing bis commander thought him guilty of proposing a military blunder." ' And yet he" persisted, Importun- tag again anil again. Flag oaker- Andrew H.

The' bluff mpon which Donelson stood was 100 foot high. , The fort itself wns what ,was called in military language a bontioned earthwork, with angles 'like star points projecting from; the main inoksure .outward, atod .protected by walls of heavy earthworks. jit was so situated that It* guns commanded the river asfaras'thoycotild carry. >Twc*wa«cr bat- t«rle*w«rew'ei«eted on ttho slope of tho bluff • toward the; river.

As soon as that iioint was captured the whole available* Confederate: force- In. that; region was- concentrated at- Donelson. , • Tho line of batMrles was extended so as, to take in Dover, -where 'stores Of food and ammunition ware. In and -out, through salient • and re-entrant, angle, for two, mile*, and a half, the tracery of earthworks and .guns went. Besides that, the fortifications were protected with bristling abatis. Itwasaiwooded region, full of '"black-jack": oak and other woods. Tha scrub < oaks i; were felletl, their braflcheB sharpened at the point! and these and the trees were fastened upon the ground, sharpened points outward, in what! seemed an unpenetrable abatis. To got at Fort Donelson'.the Union troops were obliged to go up hill over theee sharpened points in the face of marksmen whose aim was yet sharper. 'On the east,' the 'river protected the works. • Such' wefo-the defense* of Doucton. .ttileat CoL .Gihner says .that the fiSective fighting force within the fort was 15,000. Up to the time the siege began it was commanded by Gen. Bushrod R. JohnSon. . He ( was re-enforced successively by Gens) Pillow, Clarke, Floyd and Buokner, with! several, thousand men each. -Gen. J. B.' Floyd was the officer highest in rank, and .had command. : FOOTE'S FLOTILLA The Union gunboats bad done great service at Henry. , At Donelson the fleet did not distinguish Itself greatly, eicejit by convoying transports containing troops. While Grant, with 15,000 men,' plowed across the mud sea between Henry and Donelson by land, be sent Foote with six gunboats around by water. -They were obliged, to go down tbo'TennessoQ and up the .Ohio a short dittanca to the mouth of the Cumberland to Fort Donolson. Foots had to make a circuit of 750 miles to go twelve. TIM CABOSnBLBT, The Carondelet Is a go A illuatratlon of the old-fashioned gunboat It was the first to arrive on the morning of Thursday, Feb. 1& It opened fire. .It may be mentioned that the old Carondelet, with the same commander, Capt Walke, was also the first to afterward pass down the river under the batteries at Vicksbnrg. The rest of'Foote's fleet .with the transports,, containing six regimenta of soldiers, arrived Thursday evening. Friday morning the Presbyterian flag officer opened flre from his'fleet of six gunboats, four ironclads and two wooden ones. There was a severe light of an hour-and a half, which did not result hi a brilliant success for the fleet The boats engaged were tho Ironclads Bt Louis, Carondelet, Louisville and PHteburgj and the ' wooden boats Tyler-nnd Conestogol Four of •the boats wore disabled. The first fire from the Caroudelet had disabled one. of the 83-pounders in the water batteries. Tho same -shot instantly killed Lieut Joseph Dlxon, a brave Confederate officer and the accomplished local engineer who hod assisted hi preparing the defenses of Donelson. That was about the only damage apparently done by the fleet -Then Commander Footo drew off tlw • remains of -it and dropped down out of range. A .HOBTAa BOAT.

PLAN OF SIEGB. ' JWx 11,1863, the general order was given Grant's men to march from Henry to Donelson. .There were two.roadsj one, thejWynn's Ferry road, leading to Dover south ,of Fort Donelson, the other north of it spme dis tonce.., The .two, came together, not far from tba,fort,,the northern road leading;directly tothe.fort Along these two,roads the men inarched, starting the morning of Feb. IS. The First and Second dlvWons moved forward. The First division was commanded by Gen. John A. McClernand, the Second by Gen. 0. F. Smith. They moved forward, Mc.Clemnnd's division by tho right hand or southerly road, Smith's by the northerly or left bapd road. They came together two and one-half miles from Donelson. McClernond's forces took the right wing south o£ Donelson, Smith's the left wing north of Douelson. .Later word was sent to Gen. Low Wallace, who. had remained nt Fort Henry, to bring up the Third division. He arrived on the. 14th i (Friday) and/ took position with his division In the center. Thus the Federal forces invested Ponelson in form of a crescent A diagram of their position would show them as follows: Smith's division. Wallace's division. Donolson. McClenmnd's division. There was some skirmishing on the evening of the 12th between the pickets of; tha two armies. On the 13th the battle began in earnest Col. \fm. it. Morrison, of ,the Forty-ninth regiment of Illinois Volunteers, had charge of n bdgade that day in JlcClor- nand's di vision. His brigade bad some of the ; toughest work of the whole Douekon flght Their work was to assault Maney's, battery, on the Confederate left, at once the most conspicuous and inaccessible of the entire line of works. They started to climb up ;bill over the tangled and terrible "black jock" abatis. A double flre of battery and infnntry raked them fore and tift Once they fell buck, and were re-enforced. Four regiments started up the hill a second time. They were ; met with a hotter flre than before, ShrnpneJ and rifle balls flew into their teeth thick as hail.
