Buttahatchie River Bridge
Posted March 16, 2021, by Jonathan Steadman (jonathanwsteadman [at] gmail [dot] com)

Conducting research for a book and found in records that there was a Buttahatchieriver bridge 12 miles north of Columbus during the Civil War. Looking for any information about this location. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
