7082Was Crook's attack truly misdrected?

      It is generally considered that Crook’s attack against the bridge was badly misdirected and ended up reaching the creek a couple hundred yards upstream, instead of attacking it directly as planned.
       
      However, I listened to a talk by Dennis Frye in which he proposed that Crook went exactly where he wanted to; as he was protecting the right flank of Burnside’s attack.
       
      Any thoughts on this being likely?
