Manasass National Battlefield Part 4

Although it was so hot, we walked all the way to the Stone Bridge. This was a bridge over the Warrenton Turnpike. This bridge was destroyed after the 1st Bull Run battle, and reconstructed in 1962. Many of the Union troops under First Division, First Brigade (Col Keyes) fought across the bridge. It was also the place where the Union troops retreated at the end of both 1st and 2nd Bull Run.

I hope you enjoyed my visit to Manassas, I know I did and I really learned tons of things.

Until my next stop...
