Park History Interpretative Series: Enslaved Burial Ground at Bull Run Marina

Enslaved Africans were first brought to what would become the United States in 1619 and by the early 1800s the system was entrenched in the U.S., mostly in the Southern states. While all Northern states banned slavery by 1804, Virginia continued it and by the beginning of the Civil War had more enslaved people than any other state - 490,000. In 1860, there were 3,117 held in slavery in Fairfax County or about 28% of the entire county population.
