Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson figured prominently in two Confederate victories here. Also known as "Bull Run," the First Battle of Manassas on July 21, 1861, ended any illusion of a short war. The Second Battle of Manassas, August 28-30, 1862, brought Southern forces to the height of their military power. The two battles are commemorated on this 5,000 acre battlefield park.
