Manassas National Battlefield Park

Colonel Francis S. Bartow was killed near here while leading the 7th Georgia Infantry in a counterattack. An ardent defender of slavery and states' rights, the Georgia politician was placed in command of a brigade of state troops shortly before the battle. His death at First Manassas rendered him on of the South's earliest military martyrs.

Six weeks after the battle, the men of Bartow's brigade commemorated their fallen leader, dedicating a stone shaft on the spot where he fell. The monument, possibly the first erected on any Civil War battlefield, disappeared the following spring. The current marker dates to 1936.
