During the Fall of Reach, ODST Air Assault units were sent to pester Covenant troops in the mountains beyond the city's limits. Also, one of the planet's civilian evacuation stations was located in Manassas, but was apparently destroyed by the Covenant.
- Manassas was named after the city of the same name located in the Commonwealth of Virginia in the United Republic of North America.
- The city of New Alexandria was apparently known by the working title "Manassas" during the development of Halo: Reach. However, Manassas and New Alexandria were later confirmed to be separate cities.
