The Manassas Battlefield In Virginia Balances A Tumultuous History With A Beautiful Landscape
In Prince William County, Virginia, about 30 miles west of Washington DC, is the site of the Manassas Battlefield. During the summers of 1861 and 1862, enormous Civil War battles took place here, commanded by famed Southerners Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee.
Interpretive signs are strategically placed, but the audio guided tour and other walking tour material is very helpful. On occasion, park rangers will give informative talks. Visit this National Park to learn about the past and enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings at the same time.
