Civil War Sunday - A Winery

Today, on Civil War Sunday, I am going to be lazy and let another blogger do the writing.

Actually, I was fascinated by this post because of visiting Manassas, Virginia, the site of the first major land Civil War battle, back in July of 1861.

The Battle of First Manassas, in the South.

The Battle of First Bull Run, in the North. (Yes, we even named many Civil War battles differently, depending on which side of the war you were on.)

And then, in 1862, there was a second battle, almost (but not quite) in the same place as the first battle.  That kind of thing was not unusual in the Civil War, sadly.

It is so important to preserve history.  And this is where a winery, located on historic land, may help.

The entire area is full of history - and, something I never realized, wineries.  It will be worth a trip for "one day".  I am grateful for this blogger, whose link I feature today.

So today, for a change, enjoy a story about history - and wine.  

Whatever works to preserve history....


  1. How wonderful it is when people do preserve history. I'm afraid that some of our historical monuments and sites in India don't get the treatment they deserve.

    1. Many in the United States don't get the treatment they deserve, either, sadly.

  2. Very interesting! Heading over to the featured writer :)

  3. It's wonderful to visit such historical places. So much has been lost over the centuries. Thanks for sharing this interesting post, Alana.

    1. My pleasure, Debbie. I hope I can get there one day.
