manassas

originally called manassas junction prior the the civil war manassas was incorporated as a town in 1871. manassas junction was located at the intersection of the manassas gap and alexandria railroads. the junction's strategic location led to the first and second battle of manassas during the civil war. the town of manassas became the county seat of prince william county in 1892. in modern times manassas again became famous for the trials of john and lorena bobbitt and the death of dean harold meyers during the washington beltway sniper shootings. of interest to the tourist is manassas' beautiful downtown historic district and the manassas museum. for students of civil war history the manassas national battlefield is just northwest of downtown. a very nice town to visit in north central virginia.
