Paul G Brown - Private   
I would like more info on my Great-Great Grandfather.
He is written in as being from Northfield, NH, but he actually was from Northwood, NH. I believe he had a twin brother Daniel(also signed up in the Co. G NH 8th infantry)
Both died in Louisana, but not sure of the date. I do know that he mustered out of Carrollton, LA Sept. 1862.

Company G
Byron Dewain Hoitt - Sergeant   
My ancestor Byron D. Hoitt enlisted in the 8th New Hampshire on October 28, 1861 in Company G. He was promoted to Corporal on July 15, 1862. He fought at Georgia Landing and the Battle of Bisland. During the second charge at Port Hudson, LA on June 14, 1863, Byron was wounded in the head and side and would have been killed if not for a piece of castile soap and a bone ring he had in his pocket. After Port Hudson, Byron was promoted to Sergeant. He re-enlisted on January 4, 1864. Byron served with the 8th NH through the Red River Campaign as well as its assignment to provost duty in Natchez, MS. Byron was discharged on January 1, 1865. He settled in Lynn, MA and was a member of GAR Post #5, a membership so meaningful to him that their crest is prominent on his gravestone.
