From Gettysburg Lady
My mom and I visited Sach’s Bridge in Gettysburg one very early (6:00 a.m.) morning in November, 2006. We were entirely alone on the bridge and there were no people at all in the small area where the bridge is situated. For those of you who haven’t visited Gettysburg, Sach’s Bridge is a covered bridge spanning a medium sized creek known as Marsh Creek. It is located about 100 yards off Millerstown Road. In June, 1996, a storm hit the area and the original bridge was washed downstream. It has since been rebuilt using approximately 75% of its original structure. It is closed to car traffic, but is a wonderful example of covered bridges.
A portion of the Confederate army crossed the bridge during the retreat after the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863. Also, hundreds of terribly wounded men unable to make the journey back to Virginia were placed in the large field which sits directly across from the bridge.
There have been rumors through the years that three Confederate deserters were hanged from the bridge. I could find nothing in the Official Records to either supply or deny this claim.
On the morning in question, I was taking photographs and my mom was using my digital recorder. This is the EVP my mom recorded.
