Conway Robinson State Forest, a Key Access Point to the South

Conway Robinson is located adjacent to the Manassas National Battlefield, and as such, played an important role during the Civil War. The area held great importance to Confederate Generals, it’s proximity to the junction of the Manassas Gap and Alexandria railroads made it a key access point to the South’s Capital, Richmond VA.

It is through here, that the Union first advanced to attempt to capture the railroad junction, and ultimately failed at the hands of Stonewall Jackson. Despite losing more men than the northern Army had, Jackson repelled the attack and solidified the Confederate defenses. What the north though would be a surprise and quick offensive to take the south, turned into a prolonged Civil War that took thousands of american lives.

You can find more information about Conway Robinson on the Virginia Department of Forestry web site.
