First Battle of Bull Run in Manassas VA
On July 21, 1861, the First Battle of Bull Run, also known as First Manassas by the Confederate forces, the two armies first clashed here overlooking Bull Run. It was the first major battle of the American Civil War. The unions were unable to position themselves well and the Confederates had time to bring in reinforcement by rail achieving victory. The 18,000, soldiers of each side, were inappropriately trained and led in their first duel. The Second Battle of Manassas, or the Second Battle of Bull Run, on August 28-30, 1862 , the Union and Confederate armies converged for a second time on the plains of Manassas. With rails to Washington D.C., the Shenandoah Valley and Richmond Virginia, Manassas Junction was little more than a train crossing but played as a very strategic one. Confederates again came away with the win yet Manassas was in Union hands throughout most of these battles. Following the wars, this crossroads grew into the community of Manassas, which later incorporated in 1873. Manassas became the county seat, replacing Brentsville, Virginia, in 1892 and in 1975, became its own city. The First Battle of Manassas was commemorated on July 21-24, 2011 with a 150th anniversary ceremony.
