Bristoe Station Battlefield Heritage Park

10708 Bristow Road, Bristow VA 20136

The fighting here Oct 4, 1863, was part of a short-lived Confederate fall offensive. Led by Gen. A.P. Hill, Confederate forces rashly dashed up against a strong Union position and suffered great losses. The battle was judged a blunder for the Confederates and resulted in no advantage for the Southerners. The Aug 27, 1862, Battle of Kettle Run, fought on much of the same ground, is also interpreted at the site. That battle featuring Stonewall Jackson, was a prelude to the Battle of Second Manassas. The self-guided park trail features interpretive markers and old Confederate cemeteries.

Self-guided tour brochures of the park are available on site.
