The Second Battle of Bull Run (if your from the North) or Second Battle of Manassas (if your from the South) happened almost exactly one year apart from each other in the same place. While the first battle was attracted people from DC to come and watch with picnic baskets as a great entertainment, the second battle was not viewed in the same way. By this time it became obvious that this was a war that was not going away soon. There were no spectators this time that came to watch the fighting.
I was fortunate enough to spend the day walking around with my roommate AnnaLisa who had never been to visit this battlefield before. The weather was gorgeous. Just a beautiful day for a stroll around.
