SEVEN DAYS BATTLES MALVERN HILL
Across the road here stretched the Confederate line of battle, facing south, in the afternoon of July 1, 1862. Jackson commanded here, Magruder to the west. Longstreet and A.P. Hill were in reserve. The battle lasted intermittently, from morning to night, reaching its crisis late in the afternoon. The disjointed Confederate attacks were repulsed with heavy loss.
