The "Antietam Bridge"

Caption: The "Antietam Bridge"
Additional Description: This wartime photo of the bridge titled "Antietam Bridge," also appears to show the Middle Bridge, this time looking from the high ridge just east of the crossing point. If the placement of the photographer is correct, this view looks to the northwest toward the area of the modern day Observation Tower on the Sunken Lane. The abutments are similar to those in the photo above, but the photographer carefully kept other placemarks out of frame!
