UP FOR sale, WE OFFER
GENERAL RIPLEY'S REPORT OF ADVANCE ON 15TH OF JUNE 
A fine early vintageand genuine Civil War published report dated at Turner's Field, June 16, 1862. Report published at Richmond, Va., 8vo, 2pp., fully guaranteed genuine CSA imprint. This is part of a series of reports concerning the Seven Days Battle near Richmond. The report is complete.
This report was published 12 days prior to the main battle that occured June 30, 1862. The forces under the command of Gen. Ripley following the orders of Stonewall Jacksonwho had just arrived on the field of battle that would be known as White Oak Swamp and Malvern Hill, Va.
The upcoming action in support of Lee's assault at Glendale would offerGen. Jackson another opportunity to prove himself. Jackson and Lee met privately on the morning of June 30 at Savage's Station and Lee's exact orders are unknown, but they apparently were for Jackson to march to White Oak Swamp and engage the Union forces there to prevent them from reinforcing the remainder of the rear guard at Glendale. The last Union unit to travel south through White Oak Swamp,was the forces under Brig. Gen. William B. Franklin.
Jackson's men marched south on the White Oak Road with their artillery chief, Colonel Stapleton Crutchfield, at the head of the column. They marched slowly because they were accompanied by thousands of wounded Union prisoners and many of the stores that they obtained at Savage's Station. They found that the single bridge over the swamp had been burned two hours earlier. Jackson arrived at noon and approved Crutchfield's gun emplacement that was designed to fire diagonally from a ridge across the swamp against the Union batteries and infantry positions that they saw about 300 yards away.
