Company K
William L.S. Tabor - Private   
William L.S. Tabor, who was born in Methuen, Mass., and was a resident of Hampstead, N.H., enlisted as a Private in Co. K of the 15th N.H. Inf. Rgt. in the Summer of 1862. The 15th N.H. was organized at Concord, N.H., and mustered-in to Federal service (for 9 months) on 06 Oct. 1862. The regiment left Concord for New York City on 13 Nov. 1862; and, then sailed for New Orleans, La., on 19 Dec., arriving there on 26 Dec. 1862. In Jan. 1863, the 15th N.H. was assigned to the 1st Bde., 2nd Div., 19th Corps, Army of the Gulf.

From 07 May to 09 Jul. 1863, the 15th N.H. participated in the Siege of Port Hudson, La., in conjunction with Gen. Grant's Siege of Vicksburg, Miss. On 27 May and again on 14 Jun. 1863, the 15th N.H. participated in assaults upon the Confederate works at Port Hudson. On 26 Jul. 1863, the 15th N.H. was withdrawn from the lines, and started home for Concord, N.H., arriving there on 08 Aug. 1863. On 13 Aug. 1863, Pvt. William L.S. Tabor and the men of the 15th N.H. were mustered-out of Federal service; Pvt. Tabor had subsequent service in the 1st N.H. Heavy Art'y Rgt. The 15th N.H. lost 27 men killed and mortally-wounded-in-action during its' service in Louisianna.

On 10 May 1896, William L.S. Tabor,of Hampstead, N.H., after applying for a pension based upon his war-time service, was not only granted a pension--but was also awarded a Congressional Medal of Honor. His citation reads: 'Voluntarily exposed himself to the enemy only a few feet away to render valuable services for the protection of his comrades at the Siege of Port Hudson, La. [on 1 Jul. 1863].' He was buried in East Derry, N.H.--where a special Medal of Honor Headstone marks his grave.

*NOTE: I regret to report that Medal of Honor Recipient William L.S. Tabor was NOT my ancestor; but, because he is the only Medal of Honor Recipient from my hometown of Hampstead, N.H., I felt obligated to add his name to this registry--and, thereby, perpetuate his name. . . in the hope that neither he nor his deeds will be forgotten.
