Remembers the valor and devotion of
her sons who served at Fort Donelson
and other engagements of this theater
of the Civil War.

During the battle at Fort Donelson February 12-16, 1862 Col. John Gregg's 7th Texas Infantry of Davidson's Brigade, Johnson's Division, were the right of a gallant line which drove the enemy from a hill under terrific fire. In support of Confederate General Wheeler's attack on the Federal garrison at Fort Donelson, February 3, 1863, the 8th Texas Cavalry - Terry's Texas Rangers - of Wharton's Brigade set up a road block 8 miles west of Dover and successfully stopped the Union land reinforcements from reaching the battle area. Although Col. B.F. Terry was killed at the battle of Woodsonville more than a year before this action, the Rangers continued to be known as Terry's Texas Rangers to the war's end. In General Hardee's special orders it was said of Terry: "His regiment deplores the loss of a brave and beloved commander; the army of one of its ablest officers."
