The special correspondent of the World, speaking of the fighting on Sunday afternoon, says:

“The old heroes of Donelson were not easily driven. Col. Lauman, in command of a brigade, distinguished himself for his stubborn resistance and personal example.”

In his account of the battle on Monday, the same correspondent says:

“Col. Lauman also bore the burden of the struggle on Monday with a fortitude truly superior-human.”
