Winter 1865: the final stages of General Sherman's bloody march through the south. In an effort to protect the vital railroad hub Confederate soldiers destroy the remaining bridge over Broad River. Our contributor believes the marker commemorating this history has missed the mark. History Detectives examines the evidence to see if this discovery will redraw the maps of the Civil War.
