“Burnside's bridge”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

a truly beautiful bridge with a witness tree that was there during the battle. we saw bodies floating in the creek--tubers and swimmers floating on by. there is nice hiking nearby allong this substantial water way and two rather glorious rope swings.

“Part of Antietam 11 pt tour”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

my husband, civil war buff, was intent on seeing this. it's a lovely spot, but more meaningful for those who can tie it in to the Antietam battle.

“Nice walk”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

When you walk this area you get a since of the futality of the federals' efforts in this battle. The Rebs had the high gound, the sheltered areas, & the woods for cover. Grounds are well mainted & well marked.

“See history”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Having read about this bridge and the battle I wanted to see it. I am glad I did. You can look down on the bridge from the parking lot or you can take a trail down to the bridge.

“Historic bridge”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

It was very interesting to visit Burnside Bridge. It was such a peaceful and tranquil spot it was hard to think of the carnage of the day.
