Century Collection: 2nd Battle of Bull Run
Matted to include an authentic Civil War bullet
The Second Battle of Bull Run, or the Battle of Second Manassas, was waged between August 28 and August 30, 1862, as part of the American Civil War. It was the culmination of an offensive campaign waged by Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia against Union Major General John Pope’s Army of Virginia, and a battle of much larger scale and numbers than the First Battle of Bull Run. The result of the battle was an overwhelming Confederate victory, but the Union army was left largely intact in comparison to Irvin McDowell’s army after the First Battle of Bull Run/Manassas. This framed map of the Second Battle of Bull Run contains an authentic excavated American Civil War 58 Caliber 2 ring Bullet with certificate of authenticity.
