As part of the Seven Days Battles, on June 30, 1862, Confederate and Union forces clashed. Despite fierce fighting in close quarters, Confederate attempts to cut the Union army off in its retreat to the James River were unsuccessful. To commemorate the Battle of Glendale, Richmond National Battlefield Park held a series of tours, living history programs, and presentations to reflect on the significance of the battle.
