If you would have told the younger version of me when he first visited Manassas that he would be working there as a Park Ranger for the 150th Anniversary of the battle of First Bull Run, I doubt he would have believed you....
Henry House, one of the several places I will be stationed on this Saturday, July 23
Stonewall Jackson's statue, sitting along the line he held on the afternoon of July 21, 1861, earning his famous name.
I plan on taking as many pictures as my camera can possibly hold, and blogging extensively about the event and all that happens. It will truly be a remarkable day filled with incredible experiences. The fact that I get to wear a Ranger uniform and talk to visitors as an official representitive and NPS Ranger makes it so much more amazing.
If you are in the area and are free, stop by on Saturday to say hello. There will be a crowd of several thousand, so get there early, bring water, and be prepared for lots and lots of Civil War buffs.
I hope you can make it out to Manassas for the 150th this weekend, but if you can't, stay tuned here for full coverage!
