  2. "The Civil War Diary of Wyman S. White, First Sergeant, Company F, 2nd United States Sharpshooters", Appendix 11, page 356; edited by Russell C. White. Thanks to Phil Walker for sending me this file. (Note: This roster of Co. "F" (New Hampshire Men) of the 2nd United States Sharpshooters, was found by Russel C. White, among some of the effects of John R. White, which have come down to him though the family. The roster was made at the time the men first enter training, in the first part of December 1861. We have determined this from fact that one James D. Towne is listed on the roster and it is recorded that he died 20 December 1861.)
