Bridge building over the Rappahannock.

1862 August Fauquier Sulphur Springs, Va., vicinity. Troops building bridges across the north fork of the Rappahannock

Troops building bridges across the north fork of the Rappahannock in the vicinity of Fauquier Sulphur Springs, Va., by Timothy H. O’Sullivan in August 1862.

It is highly likely that the fellow on the right is the photographer, O’Sullivan.  This is the fifth photo I’ve found in this period of time – July and August 1862 – where he appears in the image.

    By looking at the photo I guess you could say that the process used to build bridges has slightly changed in the past few years. 🙂

      That’s for sure.
