Henry Hill: First Manassas (Bull Run)

strict warning: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/websites/teachinghistory.org/sites/all/modules/date/date_api.module on line 866.

This walking tour covers the July 21, 1861 Battle of First Manassas, the first notable battle of the war. It focuses on "the intense fighting on Henry Hill where the tide of the battle turned from Union success to a decisive Confederate victory. The fighting on the hill was marked by charges and counter charges, often ending in hand-to-hand fighting. One of the Confederate leaders on Henry Hill was Gen. Thomas J. Jackson, who would become 'Stonewall' that day."
