This Aug. 27, 1862, battle was a prelude to the Battle of Second Manassas (Aug. 28-30, 1862). Learning that Confederates had occupied Manassas Junction, Union Gen. John Pope sent infantry to the scene thinking that the occupiers were cavalry only. The Union detachment instead found Confederate infantry under Gen. Stonewall Jackson. The one-sided fight sent the Northerners fleeing back to Centreville. Also see Conner House. Trails sign on Breedon Ave, just west of Rt. 28.
