Description

The image depicts the Battle of Malvern Hill, which took place during the American Civil War on July 1, 1862. General Robert E. Lee stood command of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, while General George B. McClellan commanded the Union Army of Potomac. The two armies collided near Richmond, Virginia. The battle was a part of the Peninsula Campaign's Seven Days Battles. The image is printed in black ink on off-white paper. It appears to have been removed from a bound volume.
