Sachs Covered Bridge is an important point on the Gettysburg battlefield. The covered, wooden bridge was built around 1854 and spans 30 m (100 ft) over Marsh Creek. During the battle that raged from July 1-3, 1863, both armies crossed the bridge. After the Union victory, the majority of Robert E. Lee's forces retreated over this bridge. The bridge is closed to vehicles, so you can explore the area on foot, immerse yourself in the atmosphere, and read the historical information at the site. If you feel brave, you can take a ghost-hunting tour of the bridge. By using our Gettysburg itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Sachs Covered Bridge and other attractions in Gettysburg.
