Site of a Union diversionary attack during the First Battle of Manassas, the Stone Bridge defensive force was commanded by Confederate Colonel Nathan Evans. When Evans realized the attack on Stone Bridge was a diversion, he left a small force to hold the bridge and rushed the remainder of his command to Mathews Hill. However, Evans' force was too small to contain the Union Troops and the Confederate line collapsed.
