Reenlistments at Camp Gilmore

Sunday, January 10, 1864

The Thirteenth New Hampshire endured a stormy week of hail and snow in camp and spent much of their time inside quarters. This week many veterans of the original three-year regiments at Camp Gilmore re-enlisted for an additional term of service.1
