Allen's Farm

On 26 June 1862, Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan abandoned his plan to besiege Richmond and began his retreat to the James River. Gen. Robert E. Lee pursued, determined to destroy the Army of the Potomac. Just north of here at Allen's Farm, at 9:00 A.M. on 29 June, Maj. Gen. John B. Magruder's division attacked Brig. Gen. Edwin V. Sumner's corps, which formed the Union rear. The fighting continued for two hours until Sumner retired east to the Federal supply depot at Savage's Station on the Richmond & York River R.R. Another Confederate attack that afternoon ended in a stalemate, and the Union withdrawal continued.
