      Guys,

      I have a post on my blog, South From the North Woods regarding this bridge here.  It says "Located not far from the Hitt Bridge is the Pry’s Mill Bridge. George
      Burgan built this two-arch bridge for $1,650 in 1858. Its cutwaters, the upstream pier bulwarks designed to divide the current and break up ice
      flows and log jams, are unique in that they are shaped like the prows of ships. Both grist and sawmills operated at nearby Samuel Pry’s Mill.
      The wings and parapet of the bridge were rebuilt in the twentieth
      century. Like the nearby Hitt Bridge, Hooker’s Corps also used this
      bridge to cross the Little Antietam on its way to the battlefield."

      CC maps seem to show a bridge as does 1893 Antietam Board map and the Official Atlas. Haven't found a map yet that shows "ford" at that location but rather indications that it is a bridge.

      Does anyone know if the small arched bridge over Little Antietam Creek (on Keedyville Roa d that leads to Upper Bridge) existed during the battle?

      I asked several people at the park last weekend and got various answers.
