Personal Reminiscences of Seven days battles around Richmond. [from the Baltimore, Md., sun, June, 1902.] The Fortieth anniversary. By Prof. James Mercer Garnett, Ll.D. Old Confederates may recall that this week is the anniversary of the very days of the Seven Days battles around Richmond, just forty years ago—June 26 to July 1, 1862. It was on Thursday afternoon, June 26th, that General A. P. Hill opened the series with his battle at Beaver Dam creek, near Mechanicsville. It was not intended that this battle should begin until General T. J. (Stonewall) Jackson had gotten into position with his forces from the Valley. To deceive McClellan, General Whiting had been sent to Staunton by rail with reinforcements for General Jackson, but these were at once recalled, and Jackson's foot cavalry, then encamped near Weyer's Cave, was marched with all haste to Richmond to turn McClellan's right flank. We lost no time on the way until near Richmond, when we were considerably dela
