Park boundaries encompass key sites associated with the First (July 21, 1861) and Second (Aug 28-30) Battles of Manassas (Bull Run). First Manassas is remembered as the first major land battle of the war, won by inexperienced Confederates who routed an equally raw Union force. Confederate Gen. Thomas J. Jackson became "Stonewall" for his role in the fighting. The second battle, also a dramatic Confederate victory, was much bloodier. More than 3,000 soldiers were killed during the battle.

Park open daylight hours. Visitor center open 8:30 am-5 pm daily. Free.
