Charleston & Savannah Savannah River Bridge

   The bridge was completed in 1860 as a temporary structure, to be replaced by an iron bridge. The iron bridge was not constructed until after the war.
   The temporary bridge was over 1800 feet long. Starting on the South Carolina shore, there was one thousand feet of trestling, then one 150-foot Howe-truss span, then a 190-foot pivot draw section, and finally 500 feet of trestling.
