Across the winding stream of Marsh Creek
Stands a bridge of wood and stone
A witness to the march of history
And the sorrows it has known

Here passed the weary soldiers of the North
And the valiant men of Gray
Here clashed the mighty armies of the war
On that dreadful summer day

Here flowed the blood of brothers and of foes
Here echoed cries of pain and fear
Here lay the dead and dying on the ground
Here lingered ghosts for many a year

But time has healed the wounds of war and strife
And nature has restored her grace
The bridge still stands, a monument of life
And a symbol of this peaceful place

Now travelers come to marvel and admire
The beauty of this olden site
And feel a sense of wonder and of awe
At the bridge that spans the creek so bright
