Corse Memorial Bridge on GAR Highway
Highway 6 runs coast-to-coast and is named the Grand Army of the Republic Highway. The Iowa SUVCW has named 11 bridges on the Highway after Iowa CW Generals. There are also 29 GAR Highway markers across the state - an example is listed under Oakland in Pottawattamie County. This bridge is named after General John Corse, a native of Burlington, Iowa. He is best known for holding the fort at Allatoona Pass on October 5, 1864. He commanded the Federal Troops that successfully held off an intense Confederate attack. Also see the statue of Corse under Burlington in Des Moines County. The bridge crosses the Iowa River on Highway 6 on the south side of Iowa City. The photo was taken 5/12/12.
