2. The Pair of Transplanted Markers
marker, were originally erected on Lee Highway U.S. 29 (once also known as Warrenton Turnpike, U.S. 211) just west of the intersection with Sudley Road. The “Here” in the inscription refers to the intersection of the Manassas-Sudley Road (this roadway) and Warrenton Pike. “Highway” refers to the Warrenton Pike. And the “mile and a half” should be measured from that intersection. The markers have been banished to a spot almost a mile south of its original location. They are the first set of markers you see as you exit the Interstate towards the Manassas National Battlefield Park.
