150 Yrs Ago- Battle of Bull Run

July 21, 1861, one hundred fifty-years ago, the First Battle of Bull Run, also known as the First Battle of Manassas was fought in Prince William County, Virginia. It was the first major land battle of the Civil War. Thanks to the Friends of the Library we have the National Park Civil War Series of books which brings the incredible drama, horror and glory of the war to you in a handy, readable format. Each title in the series is a must for anyone interested in America’s Civil War. Did you know you can see pictures of local Civil War Soldiers on our website? We have a collection of the 19th Infantry Wisconsin Company A tintype photos in our local history photographic collection.
