RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Richmond National Battlefield Park is commemorating the 160th anniversary of the Seven Days’ Battle at Malvern Hill with ranger-led walking tours.

On Saturday, July 2, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Park Rangers will be at Malvern Hill to greet visitors, answer questions about the battle and point out sites of interest. The ranger-led tours will be offered at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.

The 10:30 a.m. tour entitled “What Could Go Wrong? Take That Hill” and the 1:30 p.m. tour entitled “To Charge with a Yell: The Battle of Malvern Hill” will explore the tactical maneuvers of the Union and Confederate forces and how this battle affected the course of the Civil War.
