After the second Battle of Bull Run (Manassas) two wounded soldiers were taken into the Stone House which was serving as a hospital after the battle. One of these men was Private Charles E. Brehm of the 5th New York Infantry. Private Brehm was wounded on August 30, 1862 during the fighting. At some point while he was in the stone house he carved his name on the floorboards in this room. You can see here he carved "Brehm Aug 30". Charles Brehm recovered from his wounds received here at Manassas and survived the remainder of the war.
