“Harrison’s Landing, James River, Va. The commissariat depot and base of operations of General McClellan occupied by the Federal Army, July 1st, 1862. Our correspondent wrote: ‘The Army of the Potomac has been compelled to fall back from before Richmond to a place of safety under the armament of the gunboats on the James River. The advance of our army, which ten days ago, was within sight of the steeples of the Confederate Capital, is now twenty-five miles distant. General McClellan has transferred his base of operations from the Pamunky River to a more advantageous position on the James River, and his camps from the pestilent swamps of the Chickahominy to the higher and healthier grounds of Harrison’s Landing.’"— Frank Leslie, 1896
