Manassas Junction OperationsEight miles southeast, at Bristoe (then Bristoe Station), Maj. Gen. Ambrose P. Hill's division of Maj. Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson's corps destroyed the Orange & Alexandria Railroad bridges over Kettle Run and Broad Run on 27 Aug. 1862. The evening before, Jackson had captured Bristoe Station, derailed three trains bound for Manassas Junction, and then, in a rare night attack, seized the huge Federal supply depot at the junction. When Union Maj. Gen. John Pope's army approached from Warrenton the next day, Hill delayed it, burned the bridges, and then marched north with Jackson to the old First Manassas battleground.
