Fifth NH Monument in the Rose Woods, Gettysburg – November 2017

There are several efforts that we have participated in over the years to help preserve Civil War history in the state and the nation shown here, including: donating to the American Battlefield Trust, helping in maintaining the NH unit stones at the Gettysburg NPS, maintaining the gravestone of Charles Phelps, and having markers placed in Boscawen at the state veterans cemetery for soldier who served in the war and did not have a stone anywhere else.

Here are some additional links to other Civil War units, photographs, archives, and more!
