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!
-Colonel Edward E. Cross, 5th NH Volunteers, Antietam
