The Brawner Farm Lane. The site of the Battle of Brawner’s Farm, on August 28, it would be the first fighting of the Second Battle of Bull Run. A brigade of four western Federal regiments, commanded by General John Gibbon, would get their first real taste of battle here. They would later earn the moniker, Iron Brigade, for their fighting at South Mountain a little more than two weeks after Second Bull Run.
