|Title||Manassas Battlefield Confederate Park (incorporated) Prince William County, Virginia: the South's proposed memorial to valor and in the interest of American history.|
|Author||Manassas Battlefield Confederate Park.|
Where have the descendants of a great people of that war-blighted era, the sun of whose brilliant, trying and heroic day is hard upon the western hills, planted similar memorials the prime purpose of which is to warn the future that the South, from first to last, was the more devoted to the principles of government by written constitution; and to proclaim the great truth that secession did as much for American constitutional government as did the Revolution which made the Constitution possible?
Manassas Sacred To All The South.
Upon the fields of First and Second Manassas there fell lads from homes in every State in the Southland. They died for the principles for which the South stood and for the security of Southern homes.
Hence, the battlefields of Manassas are sacred to every section of the South.
Not only there did gallant Wheat and heroic Bee and innumerable others pay the highest price for what the South stood: but there Beauregard and Johnston outmaneuvered and Southern soldiers outfought the finest and best equipped army up to that time gathered in America. Robert Edward Lee and "Stonewall" Jackson, again measuring up to the demands of a great crisis, repeated the brilliant feat at Second Manassas. As a result Mannssas is the birthplace of the first real and general respect the North ever entertained for the South and without which there could be no great national solidarity which today exists.
The battles of Manassas, therefore, mark one of the most important epochs in American history!
