|This will be a moderate hike of roughly 7 miles in length at Manassas National Battlefield Park in Manassas, VA. This will be a loop hike that will have half through the battlefield of the 1st battle of Manassas (1861) and half through that of the 2nd battle of Manassas (1862). In addition to a good work out hiking in the bucolic setting of the park, you'll also get treated to a little history (from yours truly). For more info about the park, you can visit this site.|
We will be hiking two days after the 150th anniversary of the first battle, which also was the very first major battle of the Civil War. In fact, the Park Service intends to have a number of reenactors present all weekend long showcasing army life and giving presentations about the battle, and we will have a chance to check them out and interact with them. Reenactors (especially Civil War reenactors) can be an interesting crowd--(mostly) bearded, overweight, middle-aged men portraying (mostly) bearded, underweight, young men. But don't worry, they don't bite (mostly!).
After the hike, we will find a place to eat a little late lunch/early dinner nearby outside of the battlefield.
