The 4th New Hampshire Infantry

This regiment was at both expeditions against Fort Fisher and participated in the final assault and capture of the big sand fort.

After that, they participated at the fight at Sugar Loaf Battery Feb. 11, 1865, Fort Anderson Feb. 18th, the capture of Wilmington Feb. 22nd.

Then it was the Advance on Goldsboro and Kinston March 6-21st. After that, they guarded the railroad between Little Washington and Goldsboro until August.

They were mustered out of service August 23, 1865.

So, not only were they at Fort Fisher and the Wilmington campaign, but were also by my hometown of Goldsboro, North Carolina.
