Construction Work at Camp Gilmore

Sunday, February 14, 1864

The Thirteenth New Hampshire enjoyed milder weather at Camp Gilmore during the week. The Thirteenth engaged in construction work around camp by repairing roads and strengthening defenses. Two cases of smallpox broke out in Company H. Today the Thirteenth New Hampshire devoted their efforts to the usual Sunday regimen of inspection, dress parade, and religious services. 1
