The Thirteenth New Hampshire endured a week of extremely cold weather at their camp in Falmouth along the Rappahannock River, as the thermometer hovered near zero for several days. The Thirteenth spent most of the previous week engaged in drills followed by a regimental inspection. Today the Thirteenth received the news that their regiment was reassigned from the First Brigade to the Third Brigade of the Third Division of the Ninth Corps. 1
