  • General I need you take your 35,000 men to Richmond and capture it.
  • With all due respect Mr. President, I do not think it is wise to send my men yet, for they are not fully trained yet.
  • Just a little further men.
  • President Abraham Lincoln Orders General Irving McDowell to lead his men to Richmond, Virginia.
  • 2 days later....
  • General Irving´s men, not yet trained, make a slow trek to Manassas, an important railroad junction, so as to earn himself an easier route to Richmond.
  • 2 days later....
  • General Pierre G.T. Beauregard and about 22,000 of his men wait for the Union soldiers to cross the creek. General McDowell on the other hand lasts two days trying to find another way around the confederates, giving General Beauregard a chance to call for assistance
  •  General Joseph E. Johnston arrives with 10,000 confederate soldiers in response to Beauregard´s request, while McDowell and his men cross the crook. Union soldiers manage to push back the left side of the confederate army but General Thomas Jackson and his unit remain firmly in place.
  • More Confederate volunteers arrive, give General Thomas Jackson a nickname...Stonewall Jackson, and fight against the Union.
