On July 21, 1861, Union troops stormed into Manassas, Virginia, to take a Southern stronghold near a stream called Bull Run, marking the start of the first major land battle of the Civil War. There they were met with fierce resistance by the Confederate army, who broke through the Union line to obtain their first major victory in the war. The blow would signal to the North that the fight against the South would not end quickly.
