Summary
After the disastrous Union defeat at Bull Run on 21 July, 1861, President Abraham Lincoln desired that the Army of the Potomac strike against the Confederate capital at Richmond, Virginia. On November 1, 1861, Lincoln turned to a new general, George Brinton McClellan, to take command of the army. The Federal commander thought he could trap Major General John Bankhead Magruder''s Army of the Peninsula at Yorktown as George Washington had cornered Lord Cornwallis during the American Revolution in 1781. The conflicts in Southeast Virginia during the first six months of 1862 comprise the Civil War''s greatest amphibious operation - the Peninsula Campaign
