Fought July 1, 1862, Malvern Hill was the last of the Seven Days' Battles, after which McClellan withdrew to his base at Harrison's Landing. The steep slopes of Malvern Hill on the Union left and the swampy bottoms on the right forced the southerners to advance across open ground. According to one Confederate officer, "It was not war-it was murder." Follow the short walking trail to view the steep slopes that protected the Federal left flank.
