Without checking their speed an instant, they continued, with their bows on, straight for the fort, every movement indicating a fixed, unchangeable determination to run straight to the rebel batteries. As soon as the three rear boats — Conestoga, Lexington, and Tyler — reached the head of the island, they opened with their heaviest guns, throwing shell over the other boats.
