SEVEN DAYS BATTLES GAINES'S MILL
Here Lee and Stonewall Jackson conferred in the morning of June 27, 1862. Jackson's troops halted here until A. P. Hill arrived from Beaver Dam Creek. Hill then moved southward by Gaines's Mill and Longstreet along a road near the river; Jackson turned to the east. All three columns approached the Union position on Boatswain Creek.
