Park Superintendent Brandon Bies describes the restoration of the Henry Hill landscape

 
Manassas National Battlefield Park was established in 1940 to preserve and interpret the sites of the First and Second Battles of Manassas. The National Park Service manages these landscapes by protecting the large tracts of land that represent the scene as it existed at the time of the battles. The open fields, wooded areas, ridges, valleys, and streams helped define the fields of battle. Additionally, the park safeguards some of Northern Virginia's largest grasslands and the the variety of ecological communities within its boundaries.

To achieve this important task, Manassas National Battlefield Park undertakes a series of landscape restoration projects to restore the landscape to its historical appearence. Follow the links below to learn more about past, current and future projects!
