Manassas Battlefield National Park
This week the GLO team visits Manassas Battlefield National Park located in Prince William County, Virginia. Join us as we digitally explore this historic national park and physically embark on a quest to find public land survey monuments located at the battlefield.
Manassas Battlefield National Park is located in Northern Virginia and consists of approximately 5,000 acres of land, trails, creeks, buildings, and historic markers. The location proved pivotal during the Civil War with two key battles taking place there, the First Battle of Manassas, or First Bull Run, and the Second Battle of Manassas, or Second Bull Run. The battlefield became a national park in 1940 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1966. The park is free to the public and provides a wealth of opportunities for visitors looking to explore history and enjoy nature. Read more on ArcGIS Story Maps.
