The Battle of Frayser’s Farm near Richmond was the sixth of the Seven Days’ Battles between US Gen McClellan and CS Gen Lee and involved many units from both armies as McClellan tried unsuccessfully to capture Richmond (again). Today the farm is the Glendale National Cemetery and while it sounds nice, I’m sure the locals would rather have a Confederate Cemetery where they could lie in honor rather than a US National Cemetery.
