Units of the 78th Infantry Division attached to the 9th Armored Division discovered the Ludendorf bridge at Remagen intact. They captured the bridge and became the first Americans across the Rhine on March 8, 1945. Shown here are the original towers of the bridge. The bridge itself collapsed later in March. The last photo shows the Ludendorf bridge as it looked after it’s capture in 1945.
