On July 21, 1861, the first major land battle took place at Manassas Junction, near the stream of Bull Run. Union forces, led by General McDowell hastily put together, faced Confederate forces led by generals PT Beauregard and Johnston. The Union had 36,000 troops and the two combined armies of the South had 32,000 troops. This was the largest battle ever in the Western Hemisphere. To the surprise of many, the South won the battle.
