Curtis 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 Samuel Curtis, an outstanding General from Keokuk. He was a Mayor of Keokuk and Congressman from Iowa before the War. He led the Army of the Southwest to victory at the Battle of Pea Ridge in 1862 and continued to direct military operations west of the Mississippi. There is a statue of him shown on this web site - see Keokuk in Lee County. This bridge is on Highway 6 just northwest of Lewis in Cass County. Photo taken 5/12/12.
