The Battle of Chantilly, (Ox Hill)

The battle, which occurred on September 1, 1862, was fought after the Battle of 2nd Manassas and before the Battle of Antietam. The conflict was the largest and most famous Civil War battle fought in Fairfax County, Virginia. Its location is near the present day intersection of Route 50 and West Ox Road. Union forces referred to it as the Battle of Chantilly while the Confederates called it the Battle of Ox Hill. The main battle lasted two and one-half hours and resulted in 270 soldiers killed, 1,125 wounded, and 105 captured. Although the Union army was able to check the Confederate army during the Union Army's retreat towards Washington D.C. from Manassas, the Union Army lost two of their most valuable Generals during the short, bloody, and rain filled fight.
