The flooding river did most of the work at Fort Henry.

Realizing he was outnumbered 5-1, Tilgman left his gunners at the fort and moved the infantry to Fort Donelson.

not sure what you mean about 'Grant arrived 3 days later', the fort surrendered to Foote in the morning and the infantry, with Grant, arrived in the afternoon...
