"Before the Civil War" comes from the Historic American Buildings Survey. Must have been a goof they made if the 1903 date is correct, which LostBridges.org agrees with.

The History field for Lincoln Covered Bridge 01-61-03x says it was "Built 1903 by Johnny Morris before the Civil War". Which Civil War was this? :-)
