Manassas National Battlefield Park [VA]

The Manassas National Battlefield Park is home of two pivotal early Civil War battles. The second battle was a resounding Confederate victory, which put the Confederacy at the height of their power. The battlefield can be toured individually, or with the help of a park ranger. The battlefield is also home to many interpretive events throughout the year.

The battlefield offers group tours, daily interpretive events, miles of trails, field trip programs, and presentations and exhibits in the battlefield's visitor center. The website offers visitor information, an events calendar, curriculum materials, and historical information.
