First Battle of Manassas
— July 21, 1861 2:30 p.m. —The Confederate army had been fighting for time. Efforts to delay the enemy's advance bought that time in blood — essential hours that allowed Southern reinforcements to reach the battlefield. Many regiments marched up from defensive positions downstream. Others had just disembarked from trains at Manassas Junction. All moved rapidly to the front — many by following the growing sound of battle.
