Manassas National Battlefield Park



Originally set aside as Bull Run Recreational Demonstration Area on November 14, 1936, Manassas National Battlefield Park became part of the National Park Service on May 10, 1940. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on October 15, 1966. This historically significant park in Virginia preserves the site of two major American Civil War battles – the First Battle of Bull Run (First Battle of Manassas), and the Second Battle of Bull Run (Second Battle of Manassas). It’s also where Confederate General Thomas J. Jackson acquired his nickname “Stonewall”.
