Private Donnor’s drawing

Private H. Donnor of the Twenty-First Ohio Artillery Battery made this drawing of Knoxville from the city’s south side (apparently placing himself well south of his own position) on Nov. 27, 1863—two days before the Rebels attacked Fort Sanders. The battery’s location, later dubbed Fort Dickerson, is today a city park.
