I'm trying to properly ID the conflict on the Peninsula on August 5(?) 1862....McClellan sends Hooker with a good body of troops to dislodge the confeds who have now occupied Malvern Hill....This is while the main army is still gathering and moving off of Harrison's landing...

I'm seeing some sources vaguely refer to it as 'Nelson's Farm'....this is NOT the 'Nelson's farm' I'm aware of (6/30/1862...Glendale / Charles city Crossroads / New Market Cross Roads /Nelson's Farm /Frayser's Farm / White Oak Swamp /1st Cold Harbor.....lord....)

I 've seen another source possibly refer to it as "II Malvern Hill".....I'm skeptical of this one...I think it's a typo....(dang OCR software trying to read 19th century text!)

Does anyone know what the proper name of that engagement is?
