Searching information regarding my great great grandfather... found that he was a Civil War Union Soldier... On June 4 1864 there was a battle at Duck River Bridge, Tenn. which I figure is the same site. Although I'm sure there are other numerous battle sites in your state..

I'm afraid this bridge is no more. It's been replaced by the ugliest concrete structure I've ever seen, and even the faintest trace that this bridge ever existed has been erased. Those piers from the older bridge before it, however, are still standing.
