“A bridge like none other”
Just a stone’s throw from the Eisenhower National Historic Site and Gettysburg National Military Park, Sach’s Bridge dates back to before the Civil War. Legend has it that 3 Confederate soldiers were hanged here after deserting during the Battle of Gettysburg. Whether that’s true or not, people have reported cannon fire, screams of those being wounded and killed, and some even claim to have seen a shadowy mist float through the bridge. Take some time to wander on the bridge, noting the intricate lattice work construction. Built in 1852, Sach’s Bridge is more than a charming artifact. Standing on the bridge, you can imagine the caissons and cannon rumbling over the wooden planks. The bridge was preserved by the Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Association and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
Neat bridge that captures the nostalgia of earlier times. Only takes a few minutes and the trip to/from bridge takes you through some wonderful farm land.
If you plot the destination using Roadtrippers app thru Waze, the destination is a little off. Keep driving and you’ll see the signs. You can also just type in Sachs Covered Bridge into Waze for a more exact location.
