UNATTAGHED COMPANY, NEW HAMPSHIRE VOLUNTEER INFANTRY.


AFTER the discharge of the three months' men at Fort Constitution, July 12, 1861, a company was enlisted to garrison the fort. It was in the service of the State and was commanded by Capt. James Davidson. On the zoth of March, 1862, Captain Davidson was ordered to enlist a company of 52 men to be mustered into the service of the United States and to be stationed at Fort Constitution until otherwise ordered.
