Seven Days : The Emergence of Robert E. Lee and the Dawn of a Legend

Description

During the Seven Days Campaign - the series of battles fought near Richmond at the end of June, 1862-General Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia routed General George B. McClellan's Army of the Potomac. Although the Confederates repulsed the powerful offensive of the Yankees, they failed to win a complete and decisive victory, and the chance would never come again. The campaign had far-reaching consequences for both sides: depriving McClellan of a military decision meant the war would continue for two more years. The "Seven Days" memorably depicts a turning point in the war and in American history.
