Fort Donelson

Located on the Cumberland River, Fort Donelson was captured by Union forces following a five-day battle from February 11-16, 1862. The victory propelled Union General Ulysses S. Grant to national prominence for demanding the “Unconditional Surrender” of the fort. Although Fort Donelson was surrounded, some Confederate troops managed to escape. Nearly 14,000 Confederate soldiers were captured, and the Cumberland River was opened to Union traffic, contributing to the success of operations against the Confederates in Tennessee.
