-Robert Edward Lee takes command-

By the middle of 1862, the Southern Confederacy teetered on the brink of disaster on all fronts. Defeat after demoralizing defeat plagued Southern forces in the west. At the same time in the eastern theater, General George B. McClellan's Federal Army of the Potomac arrived at the outskirts of Richmond after a slow but steady 50 mile march up the rugged Virginia peninsula.

On 31 May, the Confederate army, under the command of General Joseph E. Johnston, turned and attacked McClellan's army at Fair Oaks and Seven Pines. The two-day battle caught the Army of the Potomac in a vulnerable position astride the flooding Chickahominy River. After initial success, the Confederate attack was blunted and both sides returned to their lines. Perhaps the most significant result of the battle was the wounding of Johnston and the elevation of Robert E. Lee to the command of the Army of Northern Virginia.

-The Seven Days-

On 24 June 1862 General Lee moved his divisions into position for a grand offensive to relieve the Confederate capital. Bolstered by reinforcements from the eastern seaboard and Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, the Army of Northern Virginia would never be stronger at any other point in the war than it was on this day.

Lee hoped to achieve nothing less than the complete destruction of the Army of the Potomac. While on the Union side, General McClellan planned an attack south of the Chickahominy River to begin on the 25 June 1862 at a place called Oak Grove. Thus began the Seven Days Battles.
