"It was not war,
it was murder"
Confederate General D.H. Hill would utter these now famous words about the savage destruction at the Battle of Malvern Hill.
“The Guns of Malvern Hill” is a phrase that every student of the war knows, as well as the history of how Robert E. Lee’s Confederates launched a series of uncoordinated frontal attacks against massed Union artillery… and how the result was a horrible slaughter.
Now we have the opportunity to save an additional 178 acres of this important Civil War battlefield. Battlefield land that would have been filled with newly developed homes will now remain virtually unchanged from its 1862 state, with your help.
