New Civil War Class - The Armies Clash - First Bull Run and Wilson's Creek

First Bull Run
On November 10th and 17th, I will be presenting the Civil War class The Armies Clash - First Bull Run and Wilson's Creek. Southern armies under P. G. T. Beauregard defeat Union forces commanded by Irvin McDowell in Manassas, VA on July 21,1861. In the west, Brig. Gen. Nathaniel Lyon is killed at Wilson's Creek, MO on August 10, 1861. The victory by the Southern troops gave the Confederates control of southwestern Missouri.
