Manassas Civil War Battlefield

The sky is a rainbow of clouds, the birds are chirping, and I seem to be the only one here. Surrounding me are open fields, a few large trees gracing the landscape, and a number of canons. I’m in the middle of the Manassas Civil War Battlefield where the battle of Bull Run was fought. This was the first major land battle of the armies of Virginia. Seeing this landmark site at sunrise is a must if you can. What a serene location. As I walk across the fields I can only think of the many solders who lost their lives. I hope you’ll have a chance to visit this historical site that was the beginning of a very important change in our history. The abolishment of slavery.

    your technique of writing a blog. I book-marked it to my bookmark site list and will be checking back soon.
    Take a look at my website as well and let me know what you think.

  3. I love these pictures–and this isn’t spam like Mr. Asian Symbols up there. Nice sunset skies.
