The First Battle of Bull Run is remembered as the first significant battle of the American Civil War. It was fought in Virginia, and resulted in a victory for the Confederacy.
Bull Run, the first major battle of the Civil War, was fought on July 21, 1861. There was a general desire of the Union Army to advance south to Richmond and engage the Confederacy in battle. The Union underestimated the south by believing that they would crumble after their first defeat. The inexperienced Union troops found the battlefield too much, and the Southern army took the time to establish lines and consolidate positions. General Sherman had found an unguarded ford at Bull Run, which he crossed and engaged the Confederacy in battle. The Confederates refused to retreat. Later in the afternoon, the Confederacy captured some Union artillery. The Union army retreated in disarray.

The Union caled it Bull Run.
The effect of the battle was at the time surprising for both the Confederacy and the Union. To begin, it established the true face of the war and gave both the Union and the Confederacy a glimpse at how bloody the war would be. Moreover, both the North and the South believed the war would be quick and short - the North believed the Union Army would quickly decimate the Confederacy, the Confederacy would come back with its tail between its legs, so to speak, and the Union would thus be restored. The First Battle of Bull Run, extinguished this idea. On a smaller note, the battle also showed how unprepared the armies were - both the Union and the Confederacy. And looking in retrospect, it also foreshadowed the switching of Union commanders throughout the Civil War, as Brig. General Irvin McDowell clearly was not capable of leading the Union army successfully.
John Pope for the Union, and Robert E. Lee for the Confederacy
