During the early years of the Civil War, Fairfax County found itself at a crossroads between both the Union and Confederate armies because of its strategic location. Because of this geographical centrality, most of the region's most famous Civil War sites are within easy driving distance from the heart of Fairfax. Together, they collectively tell the story of America's journey through one of the most trying times in its relatively young history.
