Eugene Talmadge Bridge

Eugene Talmadge held the office of Governor of Georgia four times in the 1940’s. He was elected again in 1946, but passed away before taking office. The Eugene Talmadge Memorial Bridge, named to honor the former politician, crosses over the Savannah River between Georgia and South Carolina. Originally built in 1953, the bridge was reconstructed in November of 1990 to accommodate the large ships entering the port in Savannah, the largest single terminal container port on the United States eastern seaboard.
