With less than 100 miles separating the two capital cities of Washington, D.C. and Richmond, Virginia, Northern Virginia found itself in the center of much of the conflict of the American Civil War. The area was the site of many battles and saw great destruction and bloodshed. The Army of Northern Virginia was the primary army for the Confederate States of America in the east. Owing to the regions proximity to Washington D.C and the Potomac River, the armies of both sides frequently occupied and traversed Northern Virginia. As a result, several battles were fought in the area:

Northern Virginia Campaign, August 7– August 28, 1862.      Confederate      Union

Clarke County:

Fairfax County:

Fauquier County:

Frederick County:
