Scenario #4

HPS/JTS Shiloh: 047 - Surprise and Retake Fort Donelson

(What if)  Union General U.S. Grant has successfully taken Fort Donelson.  But due to extremely bad winter weather, his army has been unable to continue its march and has remained at Fort Donelson.  Unbeknownst to Grant, the rebel army has managed to gather its strength and march towards the fort. Confederate General Albert S. Johnston has been given permission to try to catch Grant off guard and retake the fort. Johnston's first step is to reorganize his army earlier then he did historically, and place Breckinridge in command of the Reserve Corps.  Also, all available forces have been ordered to rapidly march to a point south of Fort Donelson. The Union river fleet has been withdrawn to refit after its ordeal of just two weeks before.  The rebel guns have been spiked and cannot be used to help Grant.  The Union troops are in camp mode and are using the 400 log huts left by the Confederates.  No real defense is in place due to the lack of a perceived threat.  Newly arrived Brig. Gen. William T. Sherman is at Fort Henry (a.k.a. Fort Foote) and will soon be on his way to Fort Donelson, following the sounds of the cannon!  Can Grant mobilize and man the earthen works before the Confederates complete their surprise? (Abatis around Fort Donelson has been partially removed by Union troops.)

Johnston sends his army into Jackson.  He has ordered all forces to converge on Jackson, including General Van Dorn.  Union General Grant also moves on Jackson, but Buell is held up in Nashville and will not arrive in time.  Both sides are roughly equal in size and must outwit the other in order to claim victory.
