New Recruits Arrive at Camp Gilmore

Sunday, January 31, 1864

The Thirteenth New Hampshire observed a very warm winter week at Camp Gilmore, with the temperatures reading in the 80s in the shade and in the 90s in the sun. On Saturday vaccinations were ordered for soldiers and citizens in the camp and environs. Today sixty-four new recruits for the Thirteenth arrived at camp from Concord. 1
