Being located in the close proximity of Washington D.C., Fairfax County played an important role in the Civil War.  On September 1, 1862, the Battle of Chantilly or Ox Hill, as the Confederates called it, was being fought there.  This was the concluding battle of the Northern Virginia Campaign of the American Civil War.   It was the only major battle of the war fought in Fairfax County. Once just rural farmland, this 300 acre battle site is now a dedicated 4.8 acre memorial park, the Ox Hill Battlefield Park which boasts a pair of monuments representing the Union generals, Isaac Stevens and Philip Kearny that were killed during this battle. The remaining balance of the land, over the years has become  office buildings, apartments and other urban venues.  A small yard located within the nearby At the Fairfax Towne Center, a small piece of property has been designated as the area where Robert E. Lee led his troops to the Ox Hill Battlefield.
