One or two kilometres beyond, this road joins that coming from New Kent Court-house—that is to say, from the east—which crossed the Chickahominy at Long Bridge. Thence it inclined to south-west, and at the end of a mile and a half, it entered a group of connected clearings known by the name of Glendale, the centre of which was occupied by the large farm of Mr. Nelson. Farther yet, the road took a southerly direction, under the name of Quaker road, and struck the northern slopes of Malvern Hill, five kilometres farther on, ascending them directly, and finally descending in an oblique line on the other side, to join the elbow of Turkey Bend at Haxall's Landing.

Nelson had placed Cruft's and Manson's brigades in this village, under command of the latter, numbering between six and seven thnearly an hour, but their right wing was finally broken. Again falling back in great haste, they reached Richmond, where Nelson, who had hastened from Lexington, endeavored to organize a last effort at resistance; this time the Union soldiers did noields he had succeeded in placing himself on the other side of Richmond, on the line of retreat of the vanquished. While Nelson, severely wounded in the last battle, succeeded in escaping, Manson could not gather more than about a hundred men aroun the 30th of August, the day that Forrest was put to flight near MacMinnville, and that Kirby Smith in Kentucky dispersed Nelson's division at Richmond. It was on this same day that Buell took up his march to cover Nashville. He was too late to bar
