Excellent 2nd New Hampshire letter-written the same day as the 1st Bull Run!
This regiment would play an active role at Bull Run on the same day as this was written. I wonder if any of those listed on the letter knew about the forth coming battle that afternoon?

The regiment arrived in Washington on the afternoon of the 23d, and was brigaded with the First and Second Rhode Island and the Seventy-first New York, the brigade commander being Col. Ambrose E.
