Bull Run battlefield guide
In my opinion, a truly great First Bull Run battlefield touring guide hasn't been published yet, but there are rumblings about for both Manassas battles. The Spruill's, through the University of Tennessee Press sponsored series, have a 2nd Manassas volume coming out soon, and Ethan Rafuse's Manassas: A Battlefield Guide (which presumably will cover both battles) is set for a spring release. Rafuse's book will be the newest entry from Nebraska's infrequently updated series, which has proved to be my favorite over the years.
