Considering more than 22,000 casualties occurred on the Manassas Battlefield during the American Civil War, it should come as no surprise that tales of shadowy apparitions, orbs, and unexplained cannon fire abound. Join us for a lantern-led walking tour and full wine tasting through the historic and hallowed grounds of The Winery at Bull Run. We're excited to offer tours on Thursday and Friday nights in September, October, and November starting at 7 PM. Our tour guides will share true Civil War ghost stories with you... and perhaps you'll have a haunted encounter yourself!
