The Battle Of Arlington Mills

In the last week of June 1861, Union forces occupied Arlington, Virginia after the state voted to separate from the United States and to join the southern Confederacy. On June 1, 1861, at about 11:00PM, a few hours after the Battle of Fairfax Courthouse, the Battle of Arlington Mills occurred. This was one of the first military engagements of the American Civil War, and became an early part of the First Manassas campaign.
