  1. Often overlooked (with our focus on Savannah, Crump's Landing and Pittsburg Landing) the captured, Union-occupied Fort Donelson, Fort Henry and Fort Heinman were also within General Grant's District of West Tennessee at the time of the Battle of Shiloh. In order to maintain control of those facilities, two infantry regiments remained at Fort Donelson as garrison; and one infantry regiment served to garrison both Fort Henry and Fort Heiman (and missed Battle of Shiloh.) Your questions: Name the two infantry regiments used to garrison Fort Donelson, end of March 1862. Name the infantry regiment used to garrison both Fort Henry and Fort Heiman in March 1862. Name the officer who was left in overall command of Forts Henry, Heiman and Donelson after General Grant removed to Savannah on March 17th 1862. Good Hunting... Ozzy
