Today marks the 150th anniversary of what has been called the first major land battle of the American Civil War, the First Battle of Bull Run (also known as the Manassas Campaign/First Manassas). To call attention to the battlefield and provide visitors integrated maps, historical information and video, the Civil War Trust has recently added the Bull Run app (for iPhone) to their Battle Apps collection. For more on this week during the Civil War and the First Battle of Bull Run (Manassas), check out History.com.
