Another correction of wrong information concerning the builder ( contractor ) of said bridge.

Red Bluff Sentinel 15th July, 1876 ( again "period" paper )

To correct some of the miss information:

The "Centennial" Free bridge was called that for a reason, as it was built during the nations 100th birthday in 1876.

I included an article from the Sacramento Daily Union 3rd January, 1884 concerning the said bridge.
