Battle of Bull Run. Doc. 1.-official reports. Gen. McDowell's General orders before the battle of Stone Bridge. this battle is variously known as the battle of Bull Run, Manassas, and Stone Bridge. Headquarters, Department Army Eastern Va., Centreville, July 20, 1861. The enemy has planted a battery on the Warrenton turnpike to defend the passage of Bull Run; has seized the stone bridge and made a heavy abatis on the right bank, to oppose our advance in that direction. The ford above the bridge is also guarded, whether with artillery or not is not positively known, but every indication favors the belief that he proposes to defend the passage of the stream. It is intended to turn the position, force the enemy from the road, that it may be reopened, and, if possible, destroy the railroad leading from Manassas to the valley of Virginia, where the enemy has a large force. As this may be resisted by all the force of the enemy, the troops will be disposed as follows:
