I went on an adventure and it was a mission to see Manassas.
You could say that this is my first travel blog post about Manassas National Battlefield. It was interesting being at a place that I have read about in different history classes. I am from California so I only read about Manassas in the past. With reading about something you don’t really feel that connection to a place and time in history.
I was at Manassas National Battlefield for a few hours. I walked around the paths that took me around the first battle of Manassas (Bull Run). I learned about the different fronts were the Union were and the Confederates were located. I walked were this battle was. There were some post that said were some one died. I did not read those post again I don’t want to know I am standing were someone died or where they are buried. I start thinking about did they have a family. Are their family lines still alive in todays world. Does the family agree with what is happening in the country today. These thoughts are done with respect but thoughts I don’t want to have the whole time I am on a battlefield were lots of people lost there their lives.
I caught up to the end of the tour and learned how Stonewall Jackson Got his nick name.
I spent the rest of the day going to the different spots of the tour for the larger battle that happen in Manassas. I had to drive around to get to the different areas. I did not make it to all of the stops because it was getting dark. It was a good adventure to learn more about the nations past that I did not connect too till I went to Manassas.
