The Peninsular Campaign - A Digital History Collection: The Peninsula Campaign took place during the American Civil War as a major Union operation in southeastern Virginia from March 1862 through July 1862. The first large-scale offensive, the campaign was head by Major General George B. McClellan and was an attempt to capture Richmond. While at first successful against Joseph E. Johnston, Robert E. Lee soon emerged and the campaign turned into a Union defeat.
