Take Command: 2nd Manassas explores the titular 1862 battle of the American Civil War, a pivotal engagement of the Northern Virginia Campaign. Players are invited to take on the most crucial battles of America's Civil War and use all their tactical know-how to shape the future of the United States. Play as the Unionists or the Confederates and lead as the historically significant leaders through the authentic environments and battles of the Manassas campaign and TAKE COMMAND!

"Cannon and Thunder" - Reno's Corps

Historically, the Battle of Chantilly was fought as a series of disconnected attacks by the Union forces. In this scenario, you play as Major General Jesse L. Reno. You will have command of all of the historically accurate Union forces. It is your choice to follow history or your own ideas of how it ought to have been done. Do you have what it takes to keep your cool amid cannon fire and thunder? Take Command!

"Meeting at Ox Hill" - Jackson's Corps

This is a speculative scenario assuming that Major General Pope had acted on the intelligence that Jackson and Longstreet were separated. If General Pope had tried for a knockout blow against Jackson’s Corps, this is what might have happened. You command as Major General Thomas J. Jackson against all the forces that the Union can scrape up to attack your position. Can your troops hold against the Union attacks at Ox Hill? Take Command!
