Confederate Brigade Attack Federal Troops at Malvern HillDownload nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: Confederate Brigade Attack Federal Troops at Malvern Hill

Description: A Confederate brigade, at left, led by General Lewis A. Armistead (February 18, 1817-July 5, 1863), holding hat on his sword at center, attack well-entrenched Federal troops at Malvern Hill, on July 1, 1862, failing to dislodge the Union Army of the Potomac led by General George B. McClellan (George Brinton McClellan; December 3, 1826-October 29, 1885), which were protected in almost impregnable positions; General Robert E. Lee (January 19, 1807-October 12, 1870) had ordered a series of uncoordinated assaults that resulted in the loss of more than 5,000 men in killed and wounded, while Union losses were more than 3,000; although this was a Union victory the invariably indecisive McClellan failed to counter-attack and withdrew his forces to Harrison's Landing on the James River, entrenching his men; the bloody battle of Malvern Hill ended the Seven Days' Battles and concluded the Peninsula or Peninsular Campaign, while Lee prepared to attack a separate Union army led by General John Pope (March 16, 1822-September 23, 1892), which resulted in the overwhelming Confederate victory of the Second Battle of Bull Run (AKA: Battle of Second Manassas; August 28, 1862-August 30, 1862);
