Storming the JEnemy's. Redoubts on the
t ;' 'i
rigru.
In the afternoon Gen. McClernnd
deterriiinetl to' make a formidable 'as
sanlt of a redoubt of the enemy front
ing', about the centre of his riht; wing.
The redoubt was the only :one; which
could be, distinctly seen by us, owing
iu me uuiuer auu nnuergrowin. ai
this point'the ground was for the most
part void of large'; timber, the' barren
extending even beyond the ridgo over
which our troops passed.. The batte:
ries of. this redoubt had got a very per
fect' range liere and gave' our troops
considerable uneasiness," by - blazimr
awayat'them whenever they passed
the brow, of the lull.- Three regiments
were detailed for the work the Forty
eighth,1 Seventeenth" and Forty-ninth
Illinois. They advanced in the line of
battle order, the torty-mnth, Colonel
Morrison, on the right, the Seventeenth,
under command of Msjor Smith, (both
Colonel "and Lieut.' Colonel being ab
sent,) in the centre, and the Forty-
eighthj Col. . Harney ( on the left, .. Col.
Morrison, as senior .Colonel, led the at
tack, the advance was a most beautiful
one.- Y ith' skirmishers advanced in
front, the three regiments swept down
the hilll, over a knoll,; down a ravine,
and up the his;h hill on which the re
doubt was situated, some , 250 or 300
feet in 'height, covered with brush and
and ' stumps, ail the time receiving a
galling tire of grape, shell and musket
ry, with a precision which would have
uoiio them credit on the parade ground.
The breastworks were nearly reached,
when Col. Morrison, who was gallantly
leadinsr on his men. was struck by a
musket ball. ;The captain of, the com
pany on the right also fell, and the
Forty-ninth fell into some confusion ;
but unappalled," the Seventeenth still
gallantly pressed forward and penetra
ted to the very foot of the works. But
it was not in the power of man to scale
the abattis before them. . Brush piled
npon brush, with sharp points fronting
them everywhere," mef them wherever
they turned ; and so, after a few inter-
eharges of muskelry with the swarm-
ng regiments which had been concen
trated here, the order for retiring was
given. it was done in good order, by
filing off to the left and obliquing into
the woods below ; : but many a gallant
soldier was left behind underneath the
intrenchments they had vainly sought
to mount. 1 hey were not however,
destined to die unavenged. Scarcely
had our retiring columns got out of
range, ere la vlor s Chicago Battery
opened on the swarming rebel masses
with shell and sharpnel wllh fearful ef
fect. Everv gun was aimed by the
Captain himself, and every one of tbem
did honor to his marksmanship. . . , . -
A sortie on the left.
, About the same time that these stir
ring scenes were being enacted on our
right wing, the enemy made a formida
ble sorlie on our left. The Twentv-
fif'th: Indiana, one of the regiments of
Gen. Smith division, . having at one
time during the course of the day. got
into an exposed position, the enemy
promptly availed themselves of the op
portunity afforded them,' and made a
most formidable sortie from their in
trenchments. Although taken at a dis
advantage, the Twenty-fifth met the
advancing force bravely, and although
suffering severely, with the aid of oth
er regiments, which promptly proceed
ed to their assistance, drove them back
to their hiding places.. The lesson
seemed to be most salutary. No fur
ther sorties were made in this direc
tion. "''' " ' -':i
' Tie Fleet.
During the day niueh uneasiness was
felt as to the whereabouts of the gun
boat fleeL It was, therefore, with no
little gratification that information was
at last received about noori on Thurs
day, that the evant courrier of the fleet,
the Carondolet Lieut. Walker had ar
rived below the Fort. , In the afternoon
the report of her. guns was received
with cheer upon cheer bv the troops en
circling the beleagure'd fortv :' 1
Lieut. Walker s operations this after
noon, although: partaking more of the
nature of a reconnoisance, were con
sidered by the rebel officers, as I have
since ascertained, as one of the most
formidable attacks they had to encoun
ter. Hidden behind a jutting promontory-
of the river bank, the Carondelet
itself secure from the heavier shots of
the coltinibinds of the fort, hurled shell

upon fueii into me water uauenea oi
these fortifications., The commander
of these batteries has recently informed
me that the fire of the Carondelet did
more actual damage to his guns than
the heavy bombardment following the
succeeding dav. '
i Thursday night. " ' :
The night of Thursday will long be
remembered by the troops surrounding
Donelson. The weather, which for
the two previqus days had been so mild
and genial, towards the close ot the af
ternoon, became chilly and lowering.
About six oV-olck a heavy raiii set in.
During the warmth of the day before,
when 'momentarily expecting to meet
the enemy, whole regiments had cast
anle .their overcoats and blankets, and
wiOibut tents, and, in the great, majori
ty 'f cases, occupying positions ren-
denng a hre a sure mark tor the enemy s
batteries, with nothing to eat but cold
rations, ineir condition was ucpiorauie
indeed. : -
To add to their discomfort, when
thoroughly saturated with rain; a pelt
ing snow storm, set in, : continuing all
. J ' I Ll.l.
night, As can. be imagined, with ,an
enemy in front continually ar:nying
and annoyed, but little slceo was in-
dulged in. . The only demonstration of
importance on the part of the rebels,
was a formidable attempt on the right
wing to obtain Taylor's Battery. The
Twentieth Ipdiana, lying in the woods
below it, however, after a brisk skir
inish in the midnight darkness, sent

' Friday. ;f ..!- ;; .-;?!
iThe weather iofi Friday was in strik
ing contrast to that, of the morning pre
vious. ,- The ground , was covered with
show to the depth of a couple of inches;
and a' breeze that would have done
honor to the -Arctic regions, swept
across the desolate ridge upon which
our army was . lying. The inhabitants
of the country roundabout averred that
they had rarely experienced so severe
a day: Still was' bur force on the outer
edge of the enemy's works, that wander
where one might, he was sure to find
rising up before him. ;The entrance to
these works was still' to be gained the
location even of the door was ttill to
be found. ' : : ! : v
-1 roust admit,' that riding along our
lines on ?Friday again, and ; witnessing
the formidable .field works, of the ene
my, (between five and six miles in ex
tent,) which reared themselves every
where to the front of ns, I feared that
the task of reducing them would be at
the best a matter of considerable time.
But, cold and hungry, and. with gar
ments stiff, with frost, the soldiers were
still hopeful and firm. I did not hud a
single discouraged man, or one, if he
were so, who would -admit it. The uni
versal sentiment was as bluff Colonel
Oglesby expressed it, " We came here
tii take that fort, ;ind we will take it
and it is this self-same spirit of dogged
determination, and steady, long endur
ing courage t peculiar to the Anglo
Saxon, of the North, that at last out
wore the 'perhaps 'more impetuous
bravery of the opposing force.
Nothing of especial note. transpired
along the lines on Friday. The sharp
shooters, notwithstanding the cold, en
scon seed themselves, in their old posi
tions on the hillsides, and were as great
a terror as ever to the gunners of the
batteries above them. Cavender, Tay
lor, Woods (of McAlisterV battery,)
Dresser and Swartz would occasionally
exchange a valentine, as they were
playfully called, but there were no such
bloody a (fair 8 as had characterized the
operations the day previous.-1 The bat
teries too, had got the range of one an
other's positions so accurately, that I
imagine both parties had preferred in
absence of any positive, orders to the
contrari, to linger beside the camp fin
just out of range of the other's guns,
than to indulge in idle badinage,.
Arrival of Reinforcements the gun
boat attack.-
The long expected gunboat fleet, to
gether with', the reinforcements, had,
however, come to hand, and it was ex
pected that the latter could be brought
up, so. as to join with the other forces
in a general assault in the rear, while
the gunboats attacked in front. The
distance from the. river to the left of our
right wing was, however, so great that
but few. regiments arrived here before
dark. Gen. Grant's judgment, there-j
fore, much against his will, led him to:
adjourn the assault until he had all his
available force in proper position.' ' !-
The bombardment of the gunboat
fleet begun about half past two, and
continued two hours. Four of the
iron-clad and .two of the wooden par
ticipated in the fight, which was of a
fearful nature. Expecting the assault
on the rear of the fort, I was not pres
ent to witness the naval attack, and
shall not attempt therefore, to give any
detailed account of it. It is, however,
described by the officers' engaged in it,
as ' altogether exceeding in fierceness
the bombardment of Fort Henry.-: At
all events the effect upon the boats was
much more severe, and subsequent in
vestigation have led me to believe that
the injury inflicted on Iherebels was not
so great .either; as the fortification.
This !atter . is, probably, owing to the
fact that the twelve guns ot tne tort
commanding the river were at a con
siderable elevation, and it therefore
was much more difficult for the naval
gunners to get their exact range, or
once obtained, to keep it, while .the
boats were steadily advancing. V
The rebel officers, commanding the
river batteries, also assure iue that the
practice of our gunners in the excite
ment of the bombardment was much
inferior to that displayed in the recon
noisance. when matters were con
ducted with more deliberation. But
be this as it may, it was gallantly con
ducted, and gallantly fought, and
earned for Fiag officer Foote and his
gallant corps of officers additional lau
rels. It Was not until four of his boats,
under the terrific force of the enemy's
shots, were fairly at the mere' of .the
current,' that the signal for retirement
was given, and that it was reluctantly
ordered, and still more reluctantly
obeyed, who can doubt? In the way.
of a test of the resisting powers of the
iron clad boats, the affair was, however,
a great, triumph. Although tinder a
perfect shower of iron pellets, from the
mammoth 128 pound to the rifled 32
pouud shot, and each boat hit from 20
to 50 times, the mortality was compara
tively light. It is probable, too, that
the boats might undergo a score of as
severe ordeals without being incapau
tated to ti e exter.t they were. I he
balls which demolished pilot-houses
and cut rndder-chaiio', -nn only be re
garded as chance shots, which in a
dozen or more contests, .would never
. . . ..1 . TU
happen to fall in the particular, placc
which in this Instance proved so disks'
trous." - " " J- '.. '.
- Saturday..
. Saturday which was destined to wit
ness the grand denouncement of tlie
tragedies which had a scene about Don-
elson, was cold, damp and cheerless.'
Our troops, however, had btit little,
lime to cogitate upon the wealher, W
any other subject, ere they' were call.ecj'
upon' to nttetid to more serious matters?
The etiettiyj during the'nlglit, had trans
ferred several of their batteries to porr
tions of Iheir works within a tew bund'
red feet of which... our extreme right-wing
was retiring.. Upon the first conv"
ing of dawn, these batteries suddenly'
opened "on; the - Ninth, .Eighteenth,!
Twenty-ninth, Thirtieth,' .and TMfty
first regiments, comprising Ogles by
Brigade, and who had the advance'
Simultaneously with the opening of the'
batteries, a forced of about 12,000 in
fantry and a regiment .of cavalry, 'was
hurled against the Brigade with a vigor
which, made against; less steady and.
well disciplined "troops, .'must sorely:
have resulted in their entire demolition.!
. . Sudden and ' unexpected as was the
sally on the part of the enenj',f it did:
not find the gallant illlinoisians unpre
pared to meet them; The: attack war'
made in column by regiments which'
poured in upon the little band from my
less than three different directions.?
Every regiment of the brigade found'
itself opposed to three, and in many
cases to no less than four different regj
imcnts. Undismayed, however, by the'
greatly superior force of the enemrf'
and unsupported by adequate artillery
the brigade not; only held their owii,"
biit upon two occasions actually drove'
the rebels fairly into their intrench-;
ments, but only to be ; pressed back'
again into their former position, until
at fast, having expended every round
of their ammunition, they were obliged
to - retire and give way to the advanc
ing regiments of Col. W; II. L.. Wal
lace's brigade of the Eleventh, Tweti
tieth, Seventeenth, H orty-hltli, lorty-j
eighth Illinois, and Forty-ninth Indiana
regiments. . ,i.r ', r.: '.-j
Hero again was the battle continued
with redoubled vigor, now on one side.
and now another giving way. .' Our.
troops fought with the coolness of vet-!
crans and the desperation of devils. . X
would not diminish the gallantry of our.
own troops by saying that the enemy;
did not fight bravely and well. They
lid both. An exact statement of the
varying tortuncs ot tiic Held lor the
three or four hours following the first
attack, it is . impossible at present to.
definitely present. . Suffice it to say, pur
troopsybiit and not only fought,' and
fought courageously, but to ugl it coolly
and scienlifically. ' In the thickest of
the fight, where officers had to'remot'p'
the dead bodies of their men out of the
way of the backward wheels, regiments
performed maneuvers which So' It )ri
his tactics pronounces impossible to bo
made on the battle-field. v -:
The battle, for the most part was
fought in a forest, with a thick'under-
growlh jbenealh,' and regiments acted
mostlv on the principle of hitting-in
head -wherever it could be found
Swarming on all 6ide of them; they
were not at a loss to find them: y. One
regiment Was only driven from before
them when another sprung up to take
its place, and there is hardly a regiment
of the force engaged but was opposed
to' triple its numbers. Thus went the
tide of battle for five hours now gain,
ing a little, but upon the whole obliged
to retire. Officers -and men dropped
upon all sides. Field officers, were
borne killed and wounded from the field,
and their next in command coolly took
their place and continued the tight.
Lieut. Col. White, of the 31st; Lieut,
Col. Smith, of the 48th ; Lieut, Col.
Irvin, of the 20th, and Major Post, of
the 8th Illinois, ami scpres of company
officers were all killed, gallantly leading
on their men. ,; '. ' . . ' .":
. Cols. Logan, Lawler and Iansom
were wounded, but yet firm in their
determination never to yield. '
And still with unyielding courage
the gallant Ilfitioisiaus and Indianians
would not acknowledge' .jtheniselye3
vanquished. When the last cartridge
had been expended, and orders were
given, to retire, for other regiments to
take their place, soldiers, grim with
smoke and powder, would angrily, in
quire for what, and beg to be allowed
to use the bayonet. But it was not in
the power of mortal, men, occupying
the position ours did, and exposed to
such a raking artillery fire as the enemy
subjected them to, to maintain their
ground against the overwhelming force
which the rebels continued .to push
against them. ' '
Oglesbv's, W. IL L. Wallace's and
Mc Arthur's brigade were successively
obliged to retire; a portion of Swartz's
and McAllister's batteries had been
lost and gained and lost again, and it
was not until the advancing enemy had
reaehed Craft's brigade, arid Taylor's
and Wiuard s batteries could bebrought
into action, that we were, able to stem
the tide. These two batteries outdid
themselves. Grape, cannister and
shrapnelj'and an uninterrupted musketry
fire from the First Nebraska; Forty-
eighth and Fifty-eighth Ohio, proved
too much for the so far victorious foe,
and they at last were obliged to retire.
By this time it was noon. Gen.
Grant had just returned froth the land
ing, where he naa a conterence tvitti
Commodore Foote. That officer had
informed the General that it was im
possible for him to put his gnnbosts in
