1st Manassas: The Stone House was owned by Henry P. Matthew. After the Union advanced past the Stone House during the First Battle of Bull Run, and pushed back the Confederates on Henry Hill, the Stone House was used as a field hospital.

2nd Manassas: During the Second Battle of Manassas, the commander of the Union's Army of Virginia, Major General John Pope, set up his headquarters behind the house. The house itself was used as a field hospital, as it was during the First Battle of Manassas.

These photographs were taken in May, 1999 with a Nikon F-601 autofocus SLR. The second and third pictures were taken with a Nikkor 24mm - 50mm f2.8 wide angle zoom lens, while the first picture was taken with a Sigma 150mm - 300mm f5.6 telephoto zoom lens. The images were captured on Kodak Gold 200 film.
