The Battle of Bull Run

Fort Manassas in VA.
This is where the Battle of Bull Run
took place.


This is a very beautiful historic site.
If we did not have the national parks
pass port book, I do not think we would have stopped.
The house is known as the Henry House.
It belonged to a bedridden widow who
refused to leave when the battle started.
She was killed in her bed by artillery meant for the sharp
shooters shooting from her windows.

This is Henry Hill Monument.
Union Soldiers built it to commemorate
those who died in the First Bull Run.


A statue of Stone Wall Jackson.
