Battle of Bull Run Moves to Middletown Area

This year's reenactment of the Battle of First Bull Run (Manassas) will take place at the location of another battle, Cedar Creek. Even via I-66, the locations are an hour apart.

The National Park Service does not allow reenactments on park grounds, and the farmland that used to surround Manassas has disappeared under urban sprawl. So the grounds of Belle Grove will substitute for Manassas Battlefield.

The reenactment takes place July 21-23, 2006.
