Day Seven of the Seven Days
— Malvern Hill Battlefield - Richmond National Battlefield Park —Before you stood the Union rearguard, on Malvern Hill. Here, McClellan's line atop the plateau was only 875 yards wide. Confederate batteries were to soften the position prior to the infantry assault, but the Federal artillery proved superior. As Lee's guns rolled into position a devastating shower of exploding projectiles overwhelmed them and their crews.
