Also know as The Battle of Bull Run, and Manassas Junction, this old West Virginia fiddle tune commemorates the first great Union defeat of the Civil War, and the utter rout that came to be known as "The Great Skedaddle." The tune is modally ambiguous, wandering in a no man's land between A Mixolydian and A Dorian. The banjo is a Paramount with a semi-fretless short scale neck, tuned aEABE.
