Review and Inspection at Fortress Monroe

Saturday, February 28, 1863

The Ninth Corps held a grand review on Wednesday. The Thirteenth New Hampshire took part in this five-hour event which, by many accounts, was "a fine display." The Thirteenth was engaged in drills for most of the week. Today the camp was inspected and the regiments were mustered for pay. As February closed many agreed that this was a favorable month for the regiment.1
