Notable Ambrose Burnside Quotes
"The habit of declaring sympathy for the
enemy will not be allowed. Persons committing such
offenses will be arrested with a view toward being tried,
or sent beyond our lines to the lines of our friends."
Interesting Ambrose Burnside
Like his fellow cadet Grant, Burnside's
name was changed due to an error in the roster when he was
admitted to West Point. General Abrose Burnside's "true" middle
name was "Everts" but when he was admitted, his name was
incorrectly recorded as "Everett". From that point on, he
went by the new middle name.
