New Hampshire: By the Numbers

"The enemy are in front and the Potomac river is in their rear.  We must conquer this day, or we are disgraced and ruined.  I expect each one will do his duty like a soldier and a brave man.  Let no man leave the ranks on any pretense.  If I fall leave me until the battle is won.  Stand firm and fire low.  Shoulder arms!  Forward march!"
-Colonel Edward E. Cross, 5th NH Volunteers, Antietam 1862
Killed at Gettysburg 1863*
