Here are a couple of news items concerning the battlefield and surrounding area.

This one on cemeteries located on the battlefields of Manassas.

And this one on expectations for tourism in the coming year.

Harry, is there a national cemetary at the park? I couldn’t find any information on the NPS site. An ancestor died of typhoid fever at Manassas in July 1862 and I’m trying to find where he may be buried.

Will – no national cemetery at Manassas. If he was buried in the Manassas vicinity, there’s a good chance he was moved to Arlington after the war, if he wasn’t recovered by friends of family.

Is Judith Henry’s tombstone really cracked? It looks broken in half. Was it vandalized?
