Threatened by Union forces to the west, CSA, who had occupied city five months and fortified hills, planned to evacuate Feb. 14, 1862. Other Federals came from north and bombarded from across the river. CSA set fire to depot and warehouses, as planned, night of 13th. Federals resumed bombardment next day, but ceased and entered city when informed CSA had gone.
