Stalemate at Totopotomoy Creek
— Lee vs. Grant - The 1864 Campaign —Following the cavalry fight at Enon Church on May 28, 1864, Lee moved to block Grant's advance toward Richmond. He stationed his army along a ridge protected by swampy Totopotomoy Creek. When Union infantry arrived they found Lee's soldiers solidly dug in. Gen. Winfield Hancock's Second Corps scouted the position on May 29, then attacked on May 30 and captured a small section of Southern trenches.
