This post is more in the nature of a question. Â I am currently putting together a post on the First Battle of Manassas/Bull Run. Â Typically, those from the South refer to the battle as First Manassas and the North as First Bull Run. I personally like First Manassas both because I am from the South and I just think the name rolls off the tongue better. Â I have to admit though that First Bull Run is more descriptive as that creek bisects the battlefield while Manassas is just the nearest decent sized town to the battlefield.
My question is: Â What should the battle be named; First Manassas or First Bull Run and why do you think that?
