Part of the National Park Civil War Series. In the sleepy hamlet of Dover, Tennessee, the Confederate Fort Donelson, commanding the Cumberland River, had been the target in the first major battle in the western theater. Both sides - blue and gray - sensed victory. Three days of hard fighting had left a landscape of blood-spattered snow, wrecked buildings, shattered woodland, and one army about to be surrendered. This battle would make the name Ulysses S. Grant familiar to households across the land and earn him the nickname of Unconditional Surrender.
