Battlefield of Manassas, Va. close of the action August 29th, 1862

Accompanies “Report of Major General John Pope to the hon. Committee on the Conduct of the War.”

Handwritten note on verso reads as follows: There is very little in accuracy in this map. Porter is entirely misplaced & thrown some miles in front of his true position. Kings division of McDowell’s Corps never reached the position assigned beyond Groveton. Kearney also is thrown too far forward. A map of the positions on 28″ 29″ & 30th was sent to the War Department when Gen. Belknap was there by Gen. Porter before this colored map was thought of-with the request it might be used in compiling any map of 2d Bull Run. The data on that map was verified by Confederate as well as our officers.
