About Manassas National Battlefield Park
Manassas National Battlefield Park, located north of Manassas, Virginia, preserves the site of two major American Civil War battles: the First Battle of Bull Run on July 21, 1861, and the Second Battle of Bull Run which was fought between August 28 and August 30, 1862.
Today the National Battlefield Park provides the opportunity for visitors to explore the historic terrain where men fought and died for their beliefs more than a century ago. As an historic area under the National Park Service, the park was administratively listed on the National Register of Historic Places on October 15, 1966.
The Henry Hill Visitor Center, on Sudley Road by the south entrance to the park, offers exhibits and interpretation regarding the First Battle of Bull Run, including civil war era uniforms, weapons, field gear and an electronic battle map.
If you have any comment or suggestion
The Stone House, at the junction of Lee Highway and the Manassas-Sudley Road, is the best preserved and most conspicuous landmark in the park. During the Civil War the house was twice engulfed in battle, serving alternately as hospital for the wounded of each side.
