Manassas, VA – December 2007 – Civil War Battlefield

With a trip to DC for some training I drove down early to check out a few places. One stop was Manassas, Virginia.

Manassas is know for two significant battles during the Civil War. The ‘First Manassas’ was the first major battle, occuring in July 1861. The second occurred during August, 1862.

 

Today there is a National Park at the site.
