First Battle of Manassas

—July 21, 1861 12:30 p.m. —

Many Confederates felt they had lost the battle - perhaps the war. At that moment Generals Johnston and P.G.T Beauregard arrived on Henry Hill and began to rally the scattered regiments. The fugitives started to reform behind fresh reinforcements that deployed along the edge of the woods. Men and horses muscled thirteen cannon to the front.

After stabilizing the Confederate position, Johnston established his headquarters at Portico, hope of the Frank Lewis family, one-half mile to the southeast. There he coordinated a steady stream of reinforcements to the front. Second-in-command Beauregard remained on Henry Hill to manage the battle.

The sight of General Johnston - wounded three times in previous wars - gave the battered soldiers new courage. Learning the 4th Alabama had lost most of its field officers, Johnston personally led those troops forward, keeping the regimental flag at his side. The Robinson farm is pictured in the background.
