Two parallel pontoon bridges were assembled for the Union army to use in crossing the Potomac. In the foreground are supply wagons of the Army of the Potomac. The horizontal trace just behind the tents is a train that was in motion on the B&O Railroad during the exposure of the film for this photo.
