Morning at Burnside Bridge, G2807
“Morning at Burnside Bridge”
Antietam National Battlefield
Peaceful waters reflect the sturdy limestone arches of Burnside Bridge, located southeast of Sharpsburg, Maryland. Built in 1836 as a crossing of Antietam Creek, the bridge witnessed the daunting task of a Union attack on the Confederate infantry and artillery in 1862. A sycamore tree provides a respite just as it did for battle-weary soldiers over 150 years ago.
