Confederate Win at Gaine's Mill

Confederate Winning Charge at Gaine's Mill

Brig. Gen. John Porter's V Corps held a strong position on the Army of the Potomics right flank which was isolated North of the Chickahominy River.  General R. E. Lee wished to dislodge this stand.  His first piecemeal Rebel attacks were thrown back by the Federals, but an all-out Rebel assault, late in the day, finally broke through the Federal Lines.
