My name is Carol Swaine-Kuzel and I am the great grand-niece of a Thirteenth New Hampshire soldier, Private Nathaniel Caverly of Company F.
I began this blog site on the one-hundred fiftieth anniversary of the muster-in date of the regiment to honor the military service of the Thirteenth New Hampshire Volunteer Regiment and to honor the service of my ancestor. The blog will follow the progress of the Thirteenth New Hampshire during the Civil War, telling their heroic and poignant story by marking significant events on their sesquicentennial anniversary.
As a genealogist and family historian I am always on the search for new information pertaining to the regiment and to Nathaniel. Fortunately source material pertaining to the regiment is rich, and I have found a wealth of information about Nathaniel through the Thirteenth New Hampshire Regimental history and through his letters, Civil War records, census information, religious journals, and newspapers. I have yet to find information about Nathaniel through personal sources such as letters, diaries or photos. I invite other descendants of a Thirteenth New Hampshire veteran or anyone who has information to share about the regiment and/or Nathaniel to add a comment or to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
