SEVEN DAYS BATTLES MECHANICSVILLE
Down this slope in the late afternoon of June 26, 1862, A. P. Hill moved to attack the Unionists holding the east side of Beaver Dam Creek. Pender's brigade was on the left, Ripley's on the right. Exposed to a terrible fire from entrenched troops, Pender and Ripley were driven back, though some men reached the stream.
