      Forgot to add this, from Harry Smith's autobiography, page 251:

      "Cope's (Cope, William, History of the Rifle Brigade, London, 1877)
      order of events (p. 192) is as follows: Disembarcation of troops on
      Ile Dauphine, Feb. 8; surrender of Fort Bowyer, Feb.11; arrival of
      news of the preliminaries of peace, Feb.14. According to the text,
      the disembarcation on Ile Dauphine would appear to have followed the
      peace-news. There is no inconsistency, however. Only one Brigade
      (the 4th, 21st, and 44th Regiments) was employed in reducing Fort
      Bowyer. This Brigade disembarked on Ile Dauphine after the capture
      of the Fort, the rest of the army having disembarked previously."
