Tour Recap: This Hallowed Ground September 2015

We boarded our comfortable bus on Sunday and drove to nearby Manassas National Battlefield, along the banks of Bull Run Creek in Virginia. Aided by maps provided by our SAHT Tour Director, Dr. Mark Bielski, we explored the plans and actions of the Union and Confederate forces who fought the first major battle of the Civil War on July 21, 1861. Before leaving this area, we viewed the ground on which a subsequent battle (2nd Bull Run) was conducted in August, 1862.
