FIELD ORDERS FROM FORT DONELSON. Autograph Manuscript Signed (“U.S. Grant / Brig. Gen. Com”), 1 p, 4to, “Camp near Donaldson [sic],” February 14, 1862, titled “Gen. Field Orders No. 14,” with integral blank leaf, leaves creased horizontally and vertically, some waterstaining, soiling and wear to recto, minor separation at center folds, mounting remnants and soiling to blank leaf. Grant sends this field order reorganizing several regiments for the attack on Fort Donelson: “The 46th, 57th & 58th regiments Ill Vol. Infantry, and 2d Battalion of Curtis horse will constitute the 2d Brigade 3d Division Army in the Field. The Senior Col will command. / The 3d Brigade will be composed of the 1st Nebraska, 58th 76th and 78th Ohio and one Battalion of Curtis hose. Commanded by Senior Col. / The 1st Brigade will remain as organized under Gen. Buell and is composed of the 17th and 25th Kentucky and 31st and 44th Ia regiments, Col Cruft commanding. Brig. Gen. L. Wallace will command the 3rd division of the Army in the Field.” The Union victory at Fort Donelson was the north’s first decisive victory and an important milestone for Grant, distinguishing him as a decisive and effective leader. The battle is best remembered for Grant’s response to CSA General Buckner’s request for terms of surrender: “No terms except unconditional and immediate surrender can be accepted.” See illustration.
