Two quick points. 

Fording the Harpeth River was not exceedingly difficult on November 30 because Bedford Forrest had Jackson's Division of cavalry across the river before the infantry assault commenced.  The idea of Hood actually performing an effective flanking maneuver is a whole different matter.  But the point is getting troops over the Harpeth was not that difficult.  Hell, even Croxton's Federal Brigade shimmied across the river when Forrest began pressing him in the afternoon.

Oh how I hate photos of myself.  Looks like someone just poked me with a stick.
