Me and my wife traveled up to Fort Donelson last weekend just outside Dover,TN. I must say it
was impressive. Check out the details of the battle here.
In the distance behind me and the cannon is the Confederate trenches. Beyond the trenches is a mass Confederate Grave.
Here we have the massive 10" Columbiad Gun at the lower battery. This piece of artillery could fire a 128 pound projectile up to 3 miles down the river toward Union Ironclads. Very Impressive upclose!
