" By that he meant that they should surrender wholly, give up themselves and all they had, or he would fight them again and make them surrender. General Buckner had little to say. He knew only too well that there was nothing to be done but surrender. Grant's army marched in and took the fort. On the same day the commander at Bowling Green saw fit to get his forces out of the way; and a few days later the commander at Columbus did the same.

" Accordingly, he marched to Baltimore; and one night, when the sky was black and the rain was pouring, the wind howling, the lightning flashing and the thunder mumbling and rolling on every side, up he marched with his men and his cannon to the top of Federal Hill.
