Last of the Seven Days' Battles of the Peninsula campaign, on July 1, 1862, Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan's army retreated to the James River and defended the strong natural position of Malvern Hill against Gen. Robert E. Lee's assaults. While the Army of the Potomac continued its retreat, it inflicted great losses on the disorganized Confederate forces with well-placed artillery.
