Walking the battlefield at Manassas was amazing and intriguing. Seeing the construction of houses at the time, at least the Henry House and Stone House, made me see how simple people lived back then. It is hard to imagine that there would have been no cars here or airplanes zooming overhead. I have heard that there is a lot of problem with development encroaching on this battlefield. I can believe it. Just south of the battlefield, you go from major suburban development to pristine woods and late 19th century farmland.
