Bull Run

The war between the states had just begun. Blue and gray met at a place called Bull Run. The North blue army marched from Washington. This was in April, eighteen sixty-one. The South achieved victory on that day. Men wearing gray sent the Yankees away. A hopeful quick end lasted four long years. A high price was paid with both blood and tears. Robert Pettit 4-5-12
