Touring the Battle of Bull Run Battlefields, Nov 4, 2011

This morning we planned to attend two of the battlefield walks and also visit the museum at the visitor center.


Our first walk explained the First Battle of Bull Run (1861). It was cold and windy, but we stuck it out.

We then drive over to the Brawner Farm for the 1 pm walk. The Brawner farm house also contained a lighted battlefield which explained the Second Battle of Bull Run (1862), the one my Great grandfather was in. Here I am trying to absorb as much as I can.


The blue lights (Union) forming a line in the center with the red lines (Confederates) with the white lights firing in between is where he fought with the 73rd OVI on August 30, 1862.



Yes, Bob is disposing of the beginnings of our Chicken Kale soup. He burnt the onions, garlic, and celery. So he did a do-over and the end result was delicious.
