The covered structure over the Etowah here, was burned by Jackson [CS] Cav. May 21, 1864, the day after Johnston [CS] passage of the river at State R.R. Bridge.

May 23rd, the 2 pontoon bridges intended for the passage of Schofield 23d A.C. [US] were usurped by the 20th A.C. [US] (mistakenly diverted from Gillem bridge) and the 23d A.C. did not cross until the 24th.

This and crossings lower down were on Federal routes from Kingston & Cassville toward Dallas, Paulding Co. Sherman [US] called the Etowah "The Rubicon of Georgia."
