Manassas National Battlefield Park
On July 21, 1861, for the first time during the Civil War, North and South met in battle on the fields overlooking Bull Run in Virginia. Then again in August 1862, Union and Confederate armies met for a second time on the fields of Manassas. Archeology conducted at the battlefield has shed light on several aspects of the war including the African-American experience and a Confederate Civil War winter camp.
