The Bull Run Civil War Round Table joins the family and friends of John P. McAnaw in mourning his passing on July 7, 2018. A highly-decorated U.S. Army (retired) and Vietnam War Veteran, community leader, and past BRCWRT vice-president (2003) and president (1997/8, 2001/2, and 2004/8), John was a tremendous friend, leader and mentor for so many. A dedicated Civil War historian and preservationist, over the years John organized and led 45 BRCWRT tours of Civil War sites and played a primary and significant role in documenting and preserving multiple Civil War sites throughout Fairfax and Prince William Counties.
