Today 160 years ago, July 21, 1861, the Battle of First Manassas (called the Battle of Bull Run by the South) was fought. This was the first major battle of the war. Union forces, which had been formed in the Washington D. C. area, INVADED Virginia. These were met by a quickly organized Confederate army. In the beginning the Southern troops seemed a bit disorganized and poorly prepared in their defense. It seemed the Southern army was about to break and rout. A determined junior officer from Virginia led his men to hold their position. Thomas Jonathan Jackson stood exposed to the gunfire others were ducking from. South Carolina General Barnard Bee saw this heroic stand, he pointed and shouted to his men, "There stands Jackson like a Stonewall, rally behind the Virginians!" Jackson would forever after be known as "Stonewall Jackson". Spectators had gathered nearby in the fields and on the hillsides to watch what they thought would be a short entertaining event. These were politicians and other civilians from Washington D.C., who were expecting a quick defeat of the Southern army, many had packed picnic baskets as though they were going to a social event. Soon the battle turned in favor of the Confederates, seeing this many of those spectators began to panic and they joined the Union army and began to take to the local roads in their carriages. The fleeing Union soldiers, many who had dropped their weapons and other articles of clothing and equipment, joined in the chaos as carriages overturned blocking the way for everyone trying to make it to safety back behind the D.C. trenches. Noting the commanding position taken by the Confederate leaders and after seeing how well the Southern soldiers had fought, it was soon realized that this was NOT going to be a "Ninety-Days War" as Mr. Lincoln had thought. Many Union troops, forced by fear to swim the river, drowned. The roadways were littered with newly issued weapons and equipment. Some of the Union troops ran through the streets of Washington and was stopped by the point of bayonets of their own leaders. Had the South wanted to invade the capital and had this been a true "Civil War" at this point, many on both sides thought it was theirs for the taking. In fact it was never the desire of the Confederacy to conquer the North. They simply wanted to be left alone. Jack C. Cowart
