Description

The image depicts a scene from Battle of Malvern Hill, which took place near Richmond, Virginia during the American Civil War on July 1, 1862 as a part of the Peninsula Campaign's Seven Days Battles. The engraving shows hundreds of soldiers lined in rows while men on horses appear throughout the scene. The image appears to have been taken from a bound volume, possibly from E.A. Duyckinck's History of the War for the Union.
