In 1861, the First Battle of Manassas, the first major land battle, and the First Battle of Burlan, the first battle of the Civil War, were fought near the city. From August 28 to 30, 1862, the Second Battle of Manassas and the Second Battle of Burran were also fought near here. At that time, the Manassas Junction was not only a railroad crossing, but also a strategically important point because of the railroad connecting Richmond, Washington, D.C., and Shenandoh Valley. Despite the victory of the Southern Army in these two great battles, the Manasas Node was under the control of the Northern Army for most of the time.
This node was developed after the Civil War, and the town system was established in 1873. In 1892, the county office of Prince William County was located in place of Brentsville. It became an independent city in 1975.
Today, the development of Manasas has been strongly influenced by its status as a suburb of Washington, D.C. For this reason, traffic and urban sprawl became a major problem.
In 1993, the John Bobit and Lorina Bobit incidents occurred, and Manasas City became popular even though they did not live in the city and lived near Manasas Park City. Separate trials (John Wayne Bobitt is rapist, and Lorina Bobitt is violent) were held in Prince William County Court in Manasas City.
On October 9, 2002, the 11th of the Beltway sniper incident occurred outside Manassas City, and Dean Harold Mayors, 53 years old, was shot and died when he was filling gasoline at a Sanoko gas station along the Sudley Road near Interstate Expressway 66 in Prince William County.
In October 2005, Manassas became the first place in the United States to send a wide range of broadband (power line carrier) using power lines. Currently, citizens are offered 10 MB/s transmit service at $30 a month.
Manassas City is located at 38°C45 minutes 5 seconds north latitude and 77 degrees 28 minutes 35 seconds west longitude. In Manassas City, Interstate Expressway Route 66, U.S. National Route 29 and Virginia State Route 28 run.
According to the National Census Bureau, the total area of the city is 10.0 square miles (25.8 km2), of which land is 9.9 square miles (25.7 km2), water surface is 0.04 square miles (0.1 km2), and water area is 0.20%.
Manassas's city administration uses the structure of the City Council. The current chairman is Lawrence Hugh.

As of 2007, local Hispanic leaders estimate that the Manasas Hispanic community has grown from about 20,000 to 30,000. Other civil society groups have expressed concern about the number of illegal immigrants. We do not know the exact figures of illegal immigrants entering Manasas.
As of October 2008, the Manassas City Police declared that they would investigate the status of the stays of all those arrested since 1 December. This policy is intended to be implemented in cooperation with neighboring Prince William County. The police will ask all those arrested for violating state law or local law about the status of immigrants. Like Prince William County, if a policeman has any reason to believe that a person is illegally in the country, he can ask the person's status of stay before arrest.
