Translated from Spanish to English, the marker says, "Virginia Civil War Trails.
On September 1, 1862, an intense storm added to the violent sounds of the battle that was taking place here. The attempt of the Union army, which was retreating after losing the Battle of Manassas a few days ago. Two of the most important generals in The Union were assassinated here, Isaac Stevens and Philip Kearney. More than 2,100 soldiers were killed and wounded but the battle did not change the outcome of the war.

In 1860, 13% of the population in the United States were immigrants. One in four Union soldiers were immigrants. The Confederate Army also had immigrants of various nationalities but not much is known about them. Like many of the German-born soldiers who fought here, large numbers of Civil War soldiers could not read or speak English."
