At Manassas National Battlefield, A "Witness Tree" is a tree that was alive during the key events of the First and Second Battles of Manassas. This means that these trees must be over 150 years old. Park staff, with the help of a girl scout dedicated to completing her Gold Award project, identified several Witness Trees in the Battlefield along our trails systems. Will you be able to discover them all as you journey through the park?
