General George Picket led, and was wounded, in an attack one year before his more famous charge at Gettysburg.  We will follow in the footsteps of the Confederate attack at Gaines' Mill, and explore newly preserved land.  Don't miss this chance to take one of the first public tours of this area!  This two hour walking tour will cover one mile of open ground.  Meet at the Gaines' Mill parking lot.
