It became an issue of propaganda for the Union, and as a result the facts were

    below ground- seven floors- if the rumors are to be believed. When I first realized that the vault was underground, and not an above ground golden swimming pool like Scrooge McDuck's, it reminded me of an a simpler time in my boyhood when building forts was all the rage. I was about 9 years old and the commies hadn't quite given up on East Germany yet, the Wolverines of Wyoming had fought them off just a few years prior so I knew quality strongholds were a necessity. And no one really thought that

    Fort Donelson, Tennessee, guarding the Cumberland River, became the site of the first major Confederate defeat in the Civil War. Victory at Donelson started Brigadier General Ulysses S. Grant on his road to Appomattox and the White House.
