The stone abutment at the bridge's north end, which Union cavalrymen unsuccessfully tried to reach in order to set the bridge on fire. It is said that the present bridge uses the same stone supports as the wooden bridge of 1864, but with some augmentation at the top of the structures.
For the next photograph, the photographer faced in the opposite direction.
