Jerome B. House opened a recruiting office in Lebanon, New Hampshire in September of 1861 and succeeded in enlisting 61 men. He took his recruits into encampment at Manchester, New Hampshire, and waived his right to captaincy in favor of Jesse E. George. He accepted the rank of first lieutenant in order to secure good places for those who enlisted with him. House was mustered into service of the United States as first lieutenant of Company C on November 6, 1861. The following April, while stationed in Fort Jefferson, Captain George resigned his commission and House was promoted to Captaincy, effective April 29, 1862. Captain House was shot in the hip during a skirmish at Fort Wagner, South Carolina, and died from his wound.
