Topic: Battle of Bristoe Station (October 14, 1863)
Conversation: Does anyone know where this Battle field at Bristoe is located ? Is there a park here now ?
It seems what is now known as "Village of Bristoe" was once part of a family plantation in the pre-civil war era. Wikipedia lists about 15,000 people live now at Bristoe.
Any thoughts on Bristoe Historical Heritage ?
I have been following the Mosby's Raids stuff near where I live in Fairfax.
So the word "Station" seems to indicate some sort of rail station at Bristoe ?
