Looking for NC's Civil War: Mayo's bridge

Mayo's Bridge, across the James River on the south side of Richmond, Virginia, first opened in 1788. Numerous Confederate soldiers from North Carolina would have crossed the bridge, or other such  bridges (including pontoon bridges) during the War. The bridge, the supports of which you can see in this photograph, was destroyed in April 1865 after the last Confederate soldiers passed over from the area of Petersburg.

I took this image in December 2006.
