    Reproduction of a black and white photograph of the trestle bridge at Whiteside. Source: Barnard, George N. Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign, Embracing Scenes of the Occupation of Nashville, the Great Battles around Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain, the Campaign of Atlanta, March to the Sea, and the Great Raid through the Carolinas. New York, 1866. Dimensions: 8"x10". The great bridge at Whiteside, as originally constructed, stood upon five piers of masonry, connected by arches of timber. This structure was destroyed by the rebels a short time previous to the battle of Chickamauga. The present bridge was erected by the First Michigan Engineers and mechanics, assisted by the Railroad Construction Corps, during the fall and winter of 1863. The trestle is composed of five stories of round timber cut from the adjacent forests." Barnard, George N. Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign. (New York: Dover Publications, 1977), p. ix-x.
