Focusing on the civil war history of Manassas National Battlefield Park, this episode of Big Blend Radio's "Way Back When" History Show features poet-in-residence Lisa G. Samia and park ranger Liz Hokanson.

Originally set aside as Bull Run Recreational Demonstration Area on November 14, 1936, Manassas National Battlefield Park became part of the National Park Service on May 10, 1940, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on October 15, 1966. This historically significant park in Virginia preserves the site of two major American Civil War battles - the First Battle of Bull Run (First Battle of Manassas), and the Second Battle of Bull Run (Second Battle of Manassas). It's also where Confederate General Thomas J. Jackson acquired his nickname "Stonewall".
