The Manassas Museum has an exhibit running through April 3, 2011.

“From the Ashes: Manassas Then and Now (1860-present) uses photography to compare Manassas during the Civil War and current day. This exhibit includes previously unpublished Civil War photo’s and maps. See the changes in Manassas from the Civil War and the current look of Manassas.”

Tour at Liberia

20 08 2010

The Manassas Museum will sponsor a tour of Liberia Plantation (left) on August 28.  The focus is on spies at First Bull Run and the Civil War.  I tend to think the influence on the battle of intelligence received from folks like Rose Greenhow (right) was minimal at best, but it makes for a great story, so why let that get in the way?  See here for details.
