According to the “Revised Register of the Soldiers and Sailors of New Hampshire in the War of the Rebellion, 1861-1865” (1895): Wyman W. Holden (born in Dracut, MA) was a 21-year-old resident of Concord, NH when he enlisted as a private in Company B of the 2nd Regiment New Hampshire Volunteers on May 13, 1861. He was captured on July 2, 1863 during the Battle of Gettysburg (PA), later paroled, mustered out of service on June 21, 1864, and said to have a Post Office address in Bethel, VT.

For Holden’s recollections of the battle in the Peach Orchard on July 2, 1863, see Chapter XI titled “Company B’s Fight at the Wentz House, as told by Private Holden” in “A History of the Second Regiment, New Hampshire Volunteer Infantry in the War of the Rebellion” by Martin A. Haynes, Company I, (1896)

On that July day, the 2nd Regiment New Hampshire Volunteers was under the command of Col. Edward Lyon Bailey (1841-1930; Memorial ID: 7722470; Piscataquog Cemetery, Manchester, NH)
