Civil War Novels Set at Manassas

Navigation Home

As the first major battle in the East, First Manassas (or First Bull Run, 21 July 1861) features prominently in Civil War fiction as a major disillusionment for the Union and the first great victory for the Confederacy. Second Manassas (28-30 August 1862) has received less attention, but figures occasionally (as in Cornwell's Battle Flag).
