Also known as (and originally known as) Lower Bridge is one of several bridges constructed over Antietam Creek for farmers to take their produce into Sharpsburg, Maryland.  It was completed in 1836 by some of the local farmers.  It played a critical role in the Civil War Battle of Antietam in September 1862.

I've photographed the bridge several times with various cameras and media.  This is my most recent image of the bridge.  I think I got lucky with the lighting and lack of visitors.  (Although, 5 minutes after I took the image a whole bus load of visitors ascended on the bridge.)
