Burnside's Bridge reviews
The guide said almost all the rocks making up this bridge are original to the battle. That I could touch the very stones where so many were wounded and died was powerful. Over 500 casualties occurred.... more »
Wow! So much to see, and Burnside Bridge was quite a sight to see. You can just picture the day the troops approach the bridge! Just wow! more »
The path from the parking lot is being worked on but it was still super easy to get down to the bridge itself. A friendly volunteer was chatting up guests about the history. Everything was clean and the plaques have helpful diagrams so you can really understand where everything was happening that day. Our favorite stop of the driving tour.
OMG...I finally got to see it and walk across this iconic landmark from History. I am a student of history and have read and seen various documentaries about the Battle of Antietam and am aware of the pivotal role that this bridge played, but to see in person and walk across it humbled me more than I expected. The bridge has been rebuilt recently but only the mortar is new. Every single original stone was replaced in its exact original location. For me this was truly Hallowed Ground. Just to see this made the whole trip worth it.
