    It is eerie to contemplate what happened on that bridge just days before this photo was taken.

    I think it's one o the most photgraphed locatins of the civil war. It is a great looking bridge in my opinion.

    One of my favorite sites in all of the Civil War. Just think of the intense fighting that happened on that bridge during the battle of Antietam.
