The Red River Expedition was a feat of modern military manoeuvre

“Students of the strategic branch of military science rank the Red River Expedition as one of the most notable examples of an expeditionary force sent into a strange country far from its base of supplies. In this regard it is classed with the landing of Sir Ralph Abercrombie at Alexandria, the first Ashanti expedition, and General Roberts’ march to Kandahar.”

Bruce Harman, “Twas 26 Years Ago”. p. 5 in Toronto Mail and Empire, 1896.
