Near Manassas in Prince William County, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
Stone House – Battleﬁeld Landmark
During both battles Federals turned the former tavern into a field hospital. Bloody floorboards were hardly unique—most houses in the area became crowded with wounded men—yet in diary after diary soldiers mentioned this particular structure. The relatively unscarred walls may have provided an image of peacetime amid fields of terror.
(Photo Caption) Stone House in March 1862. The Park Service has restored and furnished the house to resemble its 1861 appearance. Much of the structure may be original: the stone walls, window frames, and some floorboards.
