Bristoe Station Battlefield Heritage Park

Friday, September 30, 2022

The Bristoe Station Battlefield Heritage Park located at Bristow, VA 20136, is the site of one of the largest battles of the Civil War. General Rufus King's Union division marched through the area in April 1862. But they were stalled by a massive snowstorm that lasted for four days. As a result, they camped around the house of Union sympathizer Thomas K. Davis. The Union soldiers tore down fences and pine trees to provide shelter.

The Bristoe Station Battlefield Heritage Park preserves the site of two major Civil War battles, as well as a number of Confederate troop encampments during the war. While the Bristoe Station Battlefield was relatively small in size compared to many others, it caused hundreds of casualties. The losses were felt throughout the South, from North Carolina to New York and Minnesota. The park contains road traces and buildings, as well as cemeteries.
