The Official Last Battle of the Civil War

Took place on both sides of the Chattahoochee River and on the 14th Street and Dillingham Bridges. Today 14th Street is being upgraded and improved and will be used as a pedestrian bridge for watching the kayakers and rafters on the river. Dillingham is the most painted and photographed bridge in the Valley; although much improved since the bridge was burned during the battle.

That's a bit of history I did not know. Thanks. It is a beautiful bridge and the pedestrian idea is super for the community. Nice shot, too.

Interesting that both of your boys worked at Carrabbas. We love the place!

A few more 'ornamentations ' and this bridge would look right at home in Europe Barb, it's really been built to last..
