On 25 June 1862 began the Seven Days' Battles as Gen. Robert E. Lee engaged Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan's Army of the Potomac, prompting McClellan to withdraw to the James River. Just north of here at 9:00 A.M. on 29 June, Brig. Gen. John B. Magruder's division attacked Brig. Gen. Edwin V. Sumner's corps, which formed the Union rear guard near Savage's Station on the Richmond & York River R.R. Sumner gained the safety of the depot and held his ground until the fighting ended in a draw about 9:00 P.M. The Federals retreated south to Malvern Hill in the night, abandoning some 2,500 wounded at the depot.
