As I looked back at through last year’s trip photos, I came across a good view of the 2nd Manassas Battlefield in the area southeast of the Brawner Farm.
Compare that view to one taken from nearly the same location in May 2007.
The treeline changes are the result of the Brawner Farm-Deep Cut landscape restoration project.
I consider this project a fine example of “the good fight” for battlefield preservation. The project began during the tenure of Dr. Robert K. Sutton as Mansassas National Battlefield Park Superintendent.
I’ll have to make a stop again this spring for another view of the site and report.
