- I seem to remember reading somewhere that George Crook said, after the
war, and after getting lost trying to find Burnside Bridge, "...if
they'd wanted me to take the bridge they would've told me where it was."
Has anyone else ever heard this quote? If so where is it from. Thanks.
- Da'ohh. I meant to quote Crook as, "..if they'd wanted me to take the
bridge they SHould've told me where it was."
