Small park for a big battle

Kind of sad this park is only the size of a block when it's such a historic site.
Had the Confederates won this battle, they would have cut off General Pope's Union forces from their retreat from the second Battle of Manassas. This could have significantly changed the outcome of the Civil War. Sadly suburban pressure has led to the creation of a park on only a very small part of the battle. This location had a cache in it, but I felt it was prudent to remove it (see the notes.) I like the location, so I've changed it to a virtual cache. There is a display near the location that lists the number of people on both sides killed. How many were there?
(No hints available.)
