Volunteer Infantry , Co. I in the fall of 1862. John T. would be discharged
disabled  in Feb. 1863 , while John Albert would serve out his enlistment.
The 15th was a 9 month regiment and would take part in the siege of Port
Hudson in the summer of 1863.
 After his discharge , John Albert would enlist in the navy in 1864 ,
serving on 4 ships as a coal hauler until the end of the war.
 A Lewis W. Sinclair of Brentwood is listed in Co. E  and dying July 25 '63

For those interested in NH units in the Revolution , including those
mentoined by Morrison , try Richard Ketchum's "Saratoga-Turning Point in
