The First Battle of Bull Run was the first major battle of the American Civil War and took place over 100 years ago on July 21, 1861. The house that stood on the battlefield at that time belonged to Mrs. Judith Carter Henry, an 85-year-old widow, and her two sons. Mrs. Henry refused to leave her house before the battle and was mortally wounded by cannon fire during the battle, becoming the first civilian casualty of the war. Confederate soldiers buried her a few yards west of her home. Her grave stone, flanked by those of a son and daughter, can be seen in the panorama.
