155 Years Ago, January 28, 1862-- Part 2: Army-Navy Cooperation on Western Waters

JANUARY 28TH, 1862:  Flag Officer Foote and General Grant worked closely and cooperated fully with each other throughout the the planning and preparations for the attacks on Fort Henry and Donelson.

Though inclement weather was to prevent Grant and his troops from taking part in the action at Fort Henry, the understandings and mutual respect formed here were to serve the Union cause brilliantly in other joint operations on the western waters as well as in Grant's later campaigns in the east.
