Hard at Work

Sunday, March 29, 1863

The Thirteenth New Hampshire was hard at work in Suffolk, helping to secure buildings and bridges around camp. Drills, guard duty, and picket duty were part of their daily routine. Today the Thirteenth New Hampshire took part in a morning inspection and an afternoon dress parade. The men of the Thirteenth also attended religious services at an Episcopal church in Suffolk.1
