The smaller battlefield is the site where General Thomas Jackson, a resident of
what is now West Virginia, rallied his troops against a northern
advance and earned the nickname Stonewall Jackson, beginning his iconic
run as one of the greatest Generals of the Civil War.
The second battle, which occurred on the larger field during August 1862, ended in another victory for the southern army. Second Bull Run set the stage for General Robert E. Lee to invade the north for the first time.
