The site of two major Civil War battles, Manassas National Battlefield Park is the place to go for Civil War students and enthusiasts to dig deep into the history of these conflicts and their meaning. Both battles were victories for the Confederacy, and the second one in particular paved the way for the Southern army's invasion of the north.
Calling this book helpful would be an understatement. This battlefield guide takes you not only on a driving tour through the park but also on a journey through the history of both battles. With driving directions, maps, and historical details to accompany each of the numerous stops—including firsthand accounts of men who fought in both battles—this book could easily be used on more than one visit to the park.
