Saturday, November 3, 2018
9 a.m.-1 p.m.
On the afternoon of August 30, 1862, the failed Union attack at the Deep Cut left Federal forces in disarray. Before they had a chance to recover, 28,000 Confederates under General James Longstreet delivered a crushing counter-assault to the disorganized Union left flank, sealing another Confederate victory on the Manassas battlefield.
This hike will follow Longstreet’s men on that fateful afternoon–the largest simultaneous mass assault of the war. Wear sturdy shoes; bring water and a snack; and wear bug repellent.
The tour will follow Longstreet’s assault from Groveton to Chinn Ridge and conclude on Henry Hill. Registered participants should meet at the Visitor Center Parking lot. Total distance: A little over 2 miles.
