For thirteen days Union and Confederate armies faced each other around Cold Harbor, their lines separated by only 150 yards of ravaged ground. Twice, on June 1 and June 3 1864, savage fighting erupted when the Federals launched massive assaults against the entrenched Confederates.

You are standing near the center of the Union lines, held by the Sixth Corps. From here, Grant's lines extended two miles south to the Chickahominy River and nearly five miles to the north.

To view this section of the Cold Harbor battlefield, take the one-mile walking trail that winds past the historic Garthright House and well-preserved Union infantry and artillery emplacements.
