Built in 1854 Sach’s Bridge is a 100’ covered Town Truss Bridge that spans the width of Marsh Creek just to the southwest of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The bridge engineer, Ithiel Towns of Connecticut, created its lattice type criss-cross wooden beam design for additional strength; thus the “Town Truss” architectural style. During and after the Battle of Gettysburg, July 1-3, 1863, Sach’s Bridge was used by both the Army of the Potomac (Union) and the Army of Northern Virginia (Confederate) to move military troops, some of whom perished. Perhaps this is why to this very day Sach’s Bridge is still considered to be haunted… Best see for yourself!
