Strategic Crossings

From the east side of this stream Union cannon fired the first shots of First Manassas at Confederates on the opposite ridge. The attack was a ruse. Though Stone Bridge offered one of the few easy routes across Bull Run, the main Union columns were circling upstream, hoping to surprise and outflank the Confederates by crossing at Sudley Ford.

A year later, at the Second Battle of Manassas, an angry, frustrated Union Army had to retreat back toward Centerville across Stone Bridge. They burned the wooden span behind them.
