I don't know if the person who wrote the existing material is still watching the page, but a change I made (replacing Eicher with a citation from Eisenhower) demonstrates why WP:IBID discourages use of this abbreviation. Things can and do get moved around or inserted between existing references on a wiki, so it can easily get out of order. One of the footnotes was already in this predicament when I got here. :) Recognizance (talk) 12:50, 16 August 2009 (UTC)
A sentence leading to a quote under the Mexican-American section does not make sense. Scott stated he had just risen from "at about 6 PM as I sat down to take a hasty plate of soup". In my rudimentary English I feel there is something missing that he had risen from which might also lend meaning to the quote. I can not view the source so can someone look at this?
