2nd New Hampshire Infantry
Col. Gilman Marston

"With the 71st New York State Militia on its left, the 2nd New Hampshire rushed to the front, and opened its store of buck and ball on the enemy. In front of the 2nd the rebels were well covered from view by the dense brush along a line of rail fence in the edge of the woods; but the men aimed low and blazed away. It was a square stand-up fight."
-Pvt. Martin Haynes
