Lee Takes Command, The Seven Days Campaign June - July 1862.
In June, 1862 Robert E. Lee is chosen to command all Confederate forces defending Richmond against The Army of the Potomac under the command of George "Little Mac" McClellan. In the ensuing campaign, known as the Seven Days Battles, Lee flings his men into attack after attack, always threatening to, but never quite succeeding in, crush the federals. Yet so completely frustrated and demoralized is McClellan that he calls off the federal invasion that reached the very gates of Richmond. A Legend was born!
