HEADQUARTERS ARMY OF THE OHIO,
FRANKLIN PIKE, TENN., November 28, 1864.
MAJOR-GENERAL GEORGE H. THOMAS, Nashville, Tenn.
GENERAL–I am informed the wagon bridge at Franklin has been carried away. Would it not be well to replace it by pontoon bridge during the rainy season?
NASHVILLE, November 28, 1864.
You can send some of the pontoons you used at Columbia to Franklin, to lay a bridge there. I will answer your other telegrams in a few moments.
GEO. H. THOMAS,
Major-General U. S. Vols., Comd’g.
