Etowah River Bridge
|The stone piers of the old Western & Atlantic Railroad bridge still stand in the Etowah River near Cartersville. It was replaced by a 1944 bridge a short distance downstream. (At U.S. 41 and Etowah River).|
|View upstream (to the northeast) during the Civil War. Defenders' trenches in the foreground. The railroad was later relocated downstream.|
|Looking south; Allatoona Pass in the Distance. (For more information, see The Photographic History of the Civil War, Volume 3: The Decisive Battles. 1911. Online at Internet Archive here.)|
|A metal deck truss bridge later replaced the wooden structure.|
