Essential To-Do List:
Second Manassas

Get the most out of your Civil War battlefield visit by exploring these recommended To-Dos.

Visit Chinn Ridge on the First Manassas Battlefield

At Chinn Ridge, Union hopes for victory at the First Battle of Manassas in July 1861 were crushed. After being repulsed by Confederates there, the Union lines collapsed and the now scattered troops fled back to Washington in terror.

Visit the Groveton Confederate Cemetery

Established by local citizens in 1867, Groveton is the final resting place of 266 Confederate soldiers killed in both battles at Manassas, and it sits on the Second Manassas Battlefield.

Stand in the Deep Cut at Second Manassas

This unfinished railroad bed which became a breastwork for Stonewall Jackson's men was the scene of repeated Union attacks on August 29 and 30, 1862. It is beautifully preserved and can be seen in almost original condition today.

Walk the Stuart's Hill Walking Trail

Stuart's Hill Walking Trail gives visitors access to important parts of the Second Manassas Battlefield not accessible by car and adds depth to the experience.
