The battle at Fort Donelson had been raging for two days. The Confederate Army found itself under a state of siege by the surrounding forces of General Ulysses S. Grant. Intent on finding a way through the Federal lines Colonel Nathan B, Forrest led the 7th Tennessee Cavalry in two unsuccessful charges against an Infantry supported Union Battery. Following a hurriedly arranged meeting with Colonel Roger W. Hanson, Commander of the 2nd Kentucky lnfantry Regiment, both Commanders agreed that the best strategy would be to attack the enemy simultaneously.

The Union Forces were sheltered in a wooded area separated from the Confederates by 200 yards of open ground. Colonel Hanson ordered the Orphans forward with instructions not to fire until at close range. Marching under heavy fire, fifty Orphans fell during the crossing, but not one Orphan fired a shot until they reached the woods.

Colonel Forrest and his Cavalry, supported by Graves' Artillery, charged the enemy cannons.

The joint efforts of the Orphans, Forrest's Cavalry, and Captain Rice Graves' Artillery sent the Union soldiers into complete retreat and opened up the sought after avenue of escape and "A Way Out."
