Hard at Work at Camp Bowers

Sunday, June 14, 1863

The Thirteenth New Hampshire spent the majority of their week felling trees and digging trenches in their ongoing construction work on the fort and roads. The Thirteenth New Hampshire had befriended the Fourth Rhode Island Regiment but were feuding with the Tenth New Hampshire Regiment.1
