Malvern Hill Richmond National Battlefield Park

The Last Day July 1, 1862
Porter positions artillery seemingly hub to hub across this half-mile crest. In front, fields slope down to woods and swamp—a tough place to form a charge. As Confederates launch disjointed assaults, Federal cannon like giant shotguns saturate the open ground with canister and grapeshot.
"Over five thousand dead and wounded men were on the ground," a Union officer reported next dawn, "but enough were alive and moving to give the field a singular crawling effect."
Malvern Hill was the last battle of the Seven Days. After successfully defending their ground, Federal U-oops continued their withdrawal to Harrison's Landing.
