Journey Through Hallowed Ground
Of the Student, By the Student, For the Student™— Journey Through Hallowed Ground, Manassas National Battlefield Park and Stonewall Middle School
From beginning to end, 400 students from Stonewall Middle School created, produced, and directed vignettes or Vodcasts, offering their interpretations of the battle of First Manassas (Bull Run), Second Manassas, and the 1911 Peace Jubilee. For middle schoolers, this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to play a crucial role in the national historic commemoration and experience history like never before. Their vignettes will become part of the official interpretive materials at Manassas National Battlefield Park and Prince William County's Sesquicentennial Commemorations of the American Civil War.
