I thought I'd post a photo I found on the Internet and contrast it with the photo I took on Labor Day.

The top photo shows the Western & Atlantic railroad bridge as it spanned the Etowah River in the spring of 1864. Confederate forces had burned the bridge as they retreated in the face of the Union advance down from Chattanooga. Sherman had the bridge rebuilt and that is what you see in the top photo. Union defenses in the foreground and scaffolding used during construction can be seen at the base of the supports. Sherman's field engineers were amazing.

Union forces again burned the bridge as Sherman departed Atlanta on his infamous "March to the Sea." 150 years later the supports still stand as silent witnesses. They are visible from Highway 41 northbound as you approach Cartersville.
