Camp at Bermuda Hundred

Sunday, May 22, 1864

The Thirteenth New Hampshire spent a reasonably quiet week at Bermuda Hundred since the end of the Battle of Drewry Bluff on Monday. The Thirteenth was hard at work in camp building entrenchments and fortifications. Today, under a flag of truce, the Confederates asked for and received permission to bury their dead near the Bermuda Hundred camp.1
