Details

Join Bristoe Station Battlefield Heritage Park staff for the 155th anniversary of the Battle of Bull Run Bridge– part of the opening rounds of what would become the Second Battle of Manassas. Hours before the Battle of Kettle Run to the South, the Battle of Bull Run Bridge was the first Federal attempt to drive Stonewall Jackson away from Manassas. This August 27th battle, while small, was particularly bloody for the Union Army and took a heavy toll on the regiments that fought there. Visit the ground on the actual anniversary for specialized in-time walking tour that will make this forgotten battle come to life in vivid detail.
