February 14 1862

Federal gunboats had edged up to within 400 yards. Artilleryman John Frequa calmly said, "Now boys, see me take a chimney." His shot tore a smokestack and the flag off the U.S. Gunboat Pittsburg. Tossing his cap into the air, Frequa roared, "Come on you cowardly scoundrels—you are not at Fort Henry!" Frequa sent the next cannonball through a porthole, and the Pittsburg started backing up.
