Malvern Hill is the story of Confederate infantry against massed Federal artillery - Southern valor against Union firepower. Late in the afternoon of July 1, 1862, blasts from Union cannon blanketed this field with smoke. Residents of Staunton, Virginia, more than 100 miles distant, heard the roar of those guns.

Confederate infantry swarmed in front, desperate to gain a foothold near the Union guns. Their goal: drive the Federals from Malvern Hill and give Robert E. Lee the total victory he so craved.

From here a one and a half mile battlefield loop trail begins to your right. A shorter one-quarter mile spur trail leading to an important battlefield overlook beyond the Crew House starts to your left.
