The blue creeks & the river are uncrossable.
The Union has McClernand's division to the south, Smith's division on the north end & Lew Wallace's division in the centre. Grant is having a meeting with his admiral & is not present when the battle starts. The riverboats unsuccessfully attacked the fort the day before - the boat is decoration, not part of the scenario.
Union: Mark, Nick & Mitch.
CSA: Chris & JohnS.
Rules: Hail Mr Lincoln (modified Hail Caesar).
In the morning our plastic Grant can repeat the real Grant's reply to the Reb's plea for terms. "No terms except for unconditional & immediate surrender can be accepted. I propose to move immediately against your works."
Fort Donelson was the first of the three times U.S. Grant captured a Confederate army. In our scenario the Union actually did better than the original. In the real deal about 3,000 Rebs managed to cut their way out, but none got away in our battle. This was due to our McClernand (Mark) being much more aggressive in defense, plus bad command dice for Floyd's brigade which left Pillow out on a limb for too long.
