Civil War anniversary covers Manassas Peace Jubilee

The 1911 Peace Jubilee was attended by thousands, including veterans of both the Union and Confederate forces. Meeting not as foes but as men attempting to eradicate the scars of civil war, aging former soldiers lined up and shook hands in a dramatic gesture of unity.

This remarkable event will be brought to life during the 150th Civil War Commemoration on Thursday, July 21, 2011, at 4:00 p.m.
