Gaines's Mill

Along the slopes of Boatswain Creek, facing north and west, extended Porter's position in the afternoon of June 27, 1862. The line was held by Sykes's division facing north, and Morell's facing west. Later McCall was thrown in to assist Morell. At dark Lee broke the Union line, and Porter retreated across the Chickahominy.
