One photograph entitled, "Incidents of the War. No. 203. General Johnston's Headquarters, Centreville," taken by Mathew Brady dated 1862. Image is of uniformed men in front of Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston's Headquarters.
The building, also known as "Grigsby House" and "the four-chimney-house" became Johnston's headquarters after the First Battle of Bull Run. Confederate Commander John Singleton Mosby met Colonel J.E.B. Stuart for the first time at these headquarters. The two went on to collaborate on Confederate operations in Virginia.
