Civil War Days

There were three battles fought near Mechanicsville during the Civil War. The Battle of Beaver Dam Creek was the second of the Seven Days Battles, and Union troops managed to fend off the Confederate Army here. Part of the battlefield is now Richmond National Battlefield Park. The Battle of Gaines’ Mill, the third of the Seven Days Battles, also has a battlefield section preserved in Battlefield Park. In this battle, the Confederate Army turned back the Union Army. The third battle, the Battle of Cold Harbor, was the last in Lieutenant General Ulysses Grant’s Overland Campaign, and the last victory for General Robert E. Lee.
