My Great Grandfather Daniel Russell Woodward served with Company E (Captain Jonathan P. Sanborn’s Company) in the 16th New Hampshire Regiment, N.H. Volunteers. According to his Certificate of Disability found within his pension application [file #WC-711-973, National Archives, Washington, D.C.]. Daniel R. was enlisted by Sanborn on 12 September 1962 to serve 9 months. Following an accident in camp where he fell on a tree stump, he was listed as unfit for duty and and given a certificate of disability for discharge on the 27th April 1863 at New Orleans, Louisiana, where he received a disability discharge from A.W. Smyth MD.
