More about this marker. There is some dispute with other sources regarding the location of the marker. It is reported as located at the intersection of VA 28 and 214. While possible that the marker was moved when the Battlefield Park was established,
Regarding Confederate Cemeteries. This marker was moved from it's location on Route 28 when the Broad Run bridge widening project began a year or two ago. It was located on Route 28 northbound directly in front of the just built (year 2000) Manassas Assembly of God church on New Life Way. Several other of the Bristoe Station markers were moved from the area of the Broad Run bridge at the same time.

1. CWPT & Developer Join Forces At Bristoe Station. 127 acres of the battlefield were donated by developers toward the establishment of a battlefield park. While centered upon the site of the October 1863 battle, the park will also include portions of the 1861 encampment and cemeteries. There is also some question about mass burial trenches around the area dating to the 1863 battle. (Submitted on December 23, 2007, by Craig Swain of Leesburg, Virginia.)
