Admiral David D. Porter, The Naval History of the Civil War., Chapter 15: capture of Fort Donelson and battle of Shiloh. (search)
. The military historian says, the gunboats gave mutual support at this moment. Boynton says, thus, on the same day, the Navy on the Western rivers received the surrender of one of the Confederate fortifications on the Mississippi, and aided very materially in saving from destruction our Army at Pittsburg Landing by repelling the last attack of the Confederates, demoralizing their army by the destructive broadsides of the steamers' heavy guns, and holding them back during the night until Nelson and Buel were ready to attack. The reader can take either version of the story that suits him best. There is a tradition in the Navy which will go down to posterity, that the Taylor and Lexington prevented part of our Army on that day from being driven into the river, and turned the enemy back when he considered that victory was in his hands. Lieut. Gwin in writing to Foote, puts it Rear-Admiral Henry Walke, (Commander of the Carondelet.) modestly thus: Your old wooden boats, I fe

his station, although a compliment to Admiral Bailey, was scarcely a reward commensurate with his character and services. He was not a man whose appearance would attract attention, except from those who could appreciate the honest and simple character of an old-time naval officer, but he was a man who had no superior in the Navy in point of dash,energy and courage, and, if he had ever had the opportunity of commanding a fleet in action, he would have done it with the coolness and bravery of Nelson. No higher compliment could be paid him. List of vessels composing the East Gulf Blockading Squadron. Under Acting-Rear-Admiral Theodorus Bailey; Lieutenant-Commander William G. Temple, Fleet-Captain.

ited much coolness and presence of mind. Acting-Master's Mate R. P. Herrick deserves especial mention, for until seriously wounded he performed his duties with great coolness and spirit. Acting-Ensign W. H. Higinbothain also deserves special mention for his coolness and bravery. He performed his duties in most exemplary manner until he received his death-wound. The few men I had on deck passing powder acted with great coolness, and at no time were there any signs of shrinking or fear. Nelson (ship's cook) John Wallington (landsman), and Mellage (paymaster's steward deserve special mention. Seven of the forward part of the division were wounded and three of them killed; most of the wounds were mortal. In addition to the above, I would call attention to the conduct of Sailmaker T. C. Herbert, whose conduct and cool courage is spoken of as most remarkable. P. Drayton, Captain. From Report of Chief-Engineer Thomas Williamson, U. S. S. Hartford: Sir — The conduct of th
