(10-02) Pilings of the original Western & Atlantic railroad bridge over the Etowah River south of Cassville (and Cartersville). Johnston burned the bridge as he retreated and it was rebuilt downstream. During the locomotive chase Andrews erred in not burning this bridge or destroying the small engine he saw on a siding nearby. His pursuers, arriving on a handcar, were able to appropriate the engine and give chase
