no comments

The Henry House is located on the Manassas National Battlefield Park. The house was owned by Dr. Isaac Henry and he lived here with his family during the First and Second battle of the Civil War.

On July 21, 1861, Judith Carter Henry (Widow of Dr. Isaac Henry) was in the home with her two sons. As the battle raged, Union artillery came through the house hitting her where she died that day. Judith Carter Henry was 85. She is buried in front of the rebuilt home today. Her daughter Ellen Phebe Morris and son Hugh Fauntleroy Henry are buried next to her.
