The Battle of Malvern Hill was the last battle in the Seven Days' Battles outside Richmond, VA, in 1862.

The battle came about as the Union army retreated to Harrison's Landing in a successful attempt to avoid Lee's Confederate advance.

The video starts on the Union artillery line moving around the edge of the battlefield anti-clockwise (counter clockwise) to cover the Confederate positions and artillery.

Please take a look at Video History Today http://www.videohistorytoday.com , the first web site to offer unique collections of re-usable original video clips designed for teachers and students.

The idea behind Video History Today is to give schools the raw material to make mini-documentaries and video essays on historical subjects.

Initial packages focus on World War I (Somme and Ieper areas), The Holocaust, the American Civil War and D-Day & Normandy 1944.
