Today in History

1861 – In the First Battle of Bull Run, the first major land battle in the American Civil War, the Confederate Army under Joseph E. Johnston and P. G. T. Beauregard routed Union Army troops under Irvin McDowell.

I live rather close to this battlefield and have walked it many times.  I also wonder how long it will be before another civil war breaks out in our country.  Makes a person think!
