You can practically see all you need by a (slow) drive by - but stop if you have time.... and contemplate its significance. If you love Civil War history - you should stop. Not a giant bridge at all but huge in history! We didn't cross it - but wish we had.

After viewing the film at the visiors center, it was interesting to see how this part of the battle took place. If taking the driving tour, this is one stop you do not want to miss.
