The Manassas Battlefield Trust, official non-profit philanthropic partner of the Manassas National Battlefield Park, will host its Inaugural Leadership Reception on Oct. 24, 2016, from 6:00 to 9:00 p. m.

The highlight of the evening will be a presentation by renowned historian Dr. Gary Gallagher, Professor of History and Director of the John L. Nau III Civil War Center at the University of Virginia. Attendees will include prominent business leaders and noted historians, such as Edwin Bearss, former Chief Historian of the National Park Service and currently its Historian Emeritus.
