About the Event

Dover, population ca. 8,500 in 1860, recruited 465 military  enlistees during the War of Secession between 1861 and 1865: over 10  percent of the male residents of the City. Sadly, there were 111 Dover  casualties during that period. These men’s names are memorialized on the  G.A.R. monument, erected in 1877, at Pine Hill Cemetery. The  July webinar will focus on one particular group: the 11th NH Regiment,  Company K.  This company was recruited mostly in Dover by two Dover men  who became the company’s officers.  Company K saw service from  Fredericksburg (December 1862) to Appomattox (April 1865) and this  lecture will explore the 11th NH’s military engagements and what  happened to these 65 brave men.
