Witness history firsthand. And learn about the loss of 620,000 soldiers who sacrificed their lives to ultimately unite our nation. This 5,000-acre national park includes a museum, original structures, picnic grounds, walking and horse trails, and hosts tours and lectures throughout the year.
And it’s only five miles north of the Manassas railroad junction that put Manassas on the map.
