New Hampshire 2nd Infantry Regiment

 

In Response to President Lincoln's April 1861 call for organization of regiments in each of the northern states, the Second New Hampshire Regiment of Volunteers was formed as a three-month's regiment. Soon after the initial enlistment, the organization was changed to a three-year term of service. By June 1861, the regiment consisted of ten companies and 1022 officers and enlisted men. Colonel Gilman Marston, Edward L. Bailey and Joab N. Patterson led the Second New Hampshire Regiment through its engagements in the war. Various captains and lieutenants led Company F through its existence including Captain Thomas Snow (resigned from service August 1862), Captain Henry Metcalf (killed at Gettysburg July 1863), and First Lieutenant James H. Baker.
