There are many free resources found on the Internet and in your local public library that will help you to learn more about your ancestor’s Civil War involvement. A wonderful starting point could be a visit to your library, asking for the topic section on the Civil War. Online, many of the books relating to New Hampshire men can be found here [Military Service, NH]. I am always updating this list, as I discover more resources, so you may wish to check back from time to time.
Not all books about New Hampshire regiments can be found online however, and so the following is a good starting point, or to find additional sources on a specific NH Regiment.
- Historical and Bibliographical Notes on the military Annals of NH, with special reference to regiment histories [lists books available on the various NH regiments]
Good luck, and please let me know of your successes!
