The Williamsburg Civil War Tour takes the civil war enthusiasts and visitors through a very interesting portion of the Peninsula campaign -

The Battle of Williamsburg Virginia.

This was the largest battle of war up until this time. This would be a testing ground for many generals. Some soldiers would later recall their experience in the battle at Williamsburg being the severest of all battles of the War.
