Crowned Pennsylvania's most historic bridge in 1938 by the highway department, the Sachs Covered Bridge may also be the state's most visited bridge. Just a few miles from Gettysburg Military Park, the Sachs (Sauck's) Covered Bridge was built in 1852 under the direction of David Stoner. Spanning Marsh Creek, the bridge saw plenty of activity in July, 1863, during the Battle of Gettysburg. Crossed by two brigades of the Union soldiers before the battle, the bridge also aided the retreating Confederate troops of Robert E. Lee.
