The Battle of Chantilly (Ox Hill) took place here 1 September, 1862. Union General John Pope’s Army, retreating after defeat by Lee at Second Manassas, clashed with Jackson’s divisions which were attempting to prevent Pope from reaching Washington. Although Union generals Kearny and Stevens were killed, Jackson’s men were held off by the smaller Union forces. The battle ended the Second Manassas campaign and led to Lee’s invasion of Maryland.
