Burnside Bridge

Lower Bridge or Rohrback Bridge is one of Antietam's famous landmarks. Major General Burnside tried to move across, but was held off by 400 Georgia riflemen. The most intense fighting occurred here and the bridge was renamed for the famous general. Burnside did eventually cross the bridge, but his men were soon forced back by 3,000 Confederate soldiers from Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.
