Robert E. Lee had accomplished the unimaginable.  He had pushed US Major General George B. McClellan's Army of the Potomac, from the "Gates of Richmond."  After CS General Joseph Johnston was wounded, at the battle of Seven Pines, Robert Lee would take over the Army of Northern Virginia.  During the Seven Days battles, Lee would hammer McClellan's larger army until it was camped at Harrison's Landing.
