  1. As we know, the 2nd Iowa Volunteer Infantry gained credit along with General C. F. Smith and Colonel James Tuttle for "that charge" on the afternoon of February 15th 1862 (which was ordered by General U. S. Grant.) Attached is a letter from Lieutenant James Baird Weaver, Company G, written to his wife back in Iowa three days later. In the six pages, Lieutenant Weaver describes Fort Donelson and its "wild abatis" of felled trees; rushing forward with uncapped muskets and fixed bayonets, while a hail of missiles streaked from every direction; witnessing comrades struck down to left and right (and records names several of those men.) The letter describes the intensity, uncertainty, and raw emotion of battle as vividly as it is possible to portray in writing. http://128.255.22.135/cdm/ref/collection/cwd/id/5098 Letter of LT James B. Weaver (digitized by Iowa Heritage Collection, in association with Iowa Universities.) Cheers Ozzy N.B. For those interested, there are other letters written by James Weaver in this collection... including one from April 9th 1862...
