Battle of Malvern Hill

The last of the Seven Days Battles - the Battle of Malvern Hill - took place. It was a Union victory in that repeated assaults along the Union lines were thwarted with heavy Confederate casualties, yet Union General George McClellan continued his retreat from the peninsula in Virginia, leaving the Confederate capital Richmond safe for the time being. Georgians were also involved in this battle.
