Abstract : The campaign of the Second Battle of Manassas was one of many campaigns during the Civil War that was waged in the valley between Washington D.C. and Roanoke, Virginia between 1862-1864. But none embodied the excitement and boldness in the execution of the operational art of war as it did. This study is based on the historical accounts and data obtained from Official Records and Regimental Histories, letters, and other recordings of first hand accounts of the events and personalities involved in that campaign. In addition to providing strategic operational overviews of the Campaign of the Second Battle of Manassas, the study focuses on the linkage between the tactical and operational art in the support of the strategic objectives of the Union and the Confederacy.
