After dark the enemy again ex
tended their lines to the river above

(!5,0(X), ours at 13,000. They were
constantly receiving reinforcements.
At night a council of war was held
by Generals Pillow, Floyd, Buckner,
Bushrod Johnson and the command
ers of some regiments. The com
mand was handed over to Buckner,
who determined on a surrender.
Feb. 10, 1802. We had received
orders to cook three days' rations by
three o'clock. By four the whole
force of the garrison was moving to
wards Dover. The column was
halted in the rear of Dover where
the solid mass of infantry and caval

wind, upon the icy snow, expecting
every minute to bo moved upon the
enemy to cut our way out and re

with the enemy ; at all events we
were in entire ignorance of anv
negotiations for a surrender. Men
had been detailed to bring from the
hospital those who were able to trav
el. Part of our clothing was thrown
away so as not to be in our way.
Well supplied with ammunition, we
aited with patience the "forward,
march" until about sunup, when the
order came to right about and march
In the meantime Col. Forrest and
Generals Pillow and Floyd set about
to see how they might escape. They
succeeded in doing so, Forrest and
his men by going up the river with

the wounded to Nashville. Floyd,
with the greater part of his brigade,
employed a boat until eight o'clock
in taking them off. when word was
sent to the wharf that longer
delay would endanger the
boat and all on board. Word was
given to shove tho boat out, when a
rush was made from the crowded
wharf by men in mud and water up
to their knees. They were repelled
bv three or four officers at the bow
of the boat, cutting them with their
swords. Six or eight followed the
boat up to their arms in water, some
succeeding in getting aboard while
others were shoved oil to keep the
boat from sinking.
Many of the soldiers escaped
across the river, some on logs lashed
together, some by swimming their
horses across, some in a skiff. Some
escaped through the lines of the
enemy. In all nearly four thousand
The soldiers pitched into the par
rels of whiskey and boxes of cloth

the armv. Muskets, pistols and
swords were broken up and thrown
into tho river and scattered around
in confusion bv the enraged soldiers,
who felt that an outrage had been
committed in surrendering them.
Wo stood around all day in mud

enemy. Several of them were shot
by carelessly handling our guns
which were loaded. Several of our
men were shot. Our trunks were
