The Thirteenth New Hampshire passed another week at Camp Bowers hard at work building fortifications and constructing roadways. After the usual Sunday routine of inspection and dress parade the men of the Thirteenth attended religious services and wrote letters to their loved ones. Many complained of the very hot weather at Camp Bowers.1
