Civil War Reenactors
Experience Living History on Saturday, August 20 and Sunday, August 21 by walking through the Federal and Union camps and speaking with the Civil War reenactors. On Sunday, August 21, the First Battle of Manassas will begin at 2 PM followed by the retreat of the Union soldiers and civilian picnickers who gathered to watch the battle.
The Ladies of the Blue and Grey
The Ladies of the Blue and Grey are a group of ladies and gentlemen who started appearing in and around Manassas wearing 1861 attire in early 2011 to promote the Manassas Sesquicentennial Civil War Commemoration activities. After the 1st and 2nd Battle of Manassas 150th commemoration, the group continued to help promote and participate in various activities in the area, such as the annual Civil War Weekend in Manassas, Manassas 1st Fridays, Liberia House Tours, The Winery at Bull Run’s Civil War reenactments, etc.
In addition, the group has adopted the Volunteer Prince William’s “Un Trim A Tree” project as their mission. The ladies are honored to be able to assist with such a wonderful charity and give back to the families and children in the local area. The “Un Trim A Tree” project provides Christmas presents to under privileged children in the local area. The Ladies of the Blue and Grey will be present at The Winery at Bull Run’s Civil War Day on August 20th to collect toys and raise donations for this worthy project.
