Manassas History

The First Battle of Manassas, also known as the First Battle of Bull Run, was fought in this area in 1861. This was the first major land battle of the American Civil War. The Second Manassas Battle was fought in August 1862. At that time, Manassas was just a railroad crossing and, despite the two victories, it remained in the Union's hands for most of the war. The town of Manassas was officially incorporated in 1873. The community was so called because of its location at the junction of the Manassas Gap and the Alexandria and Orange railroads. It was incorporated as an independent city in 1975.
