With his men already outnumbering the Union troops, Confederate Gen. John Hunt Morgan hatched an idea to further weaken the Union forces.
Union men had built a wooden bridge to help transport supplies and soldiers for their cause over a bend in the Green River known as Tebbs Bend.
And on Jan. 1, 1863, Morgan's men burned the bridge, delivering a severe blow to the already frail Union men.
Now, nearly 150 years after the bridge burned, it's set to fall once again.
