This book consists of a compilation of life sketches of the various men who served either as regular or contract surgeons during the Civil War or who became physicians after their term of army service had expired. Dr. Conn has used General Ayling's Register freely, to which he gives due credit. Many names, however, have been introduced that are not to be found in the Register, as the history is a much later compilation and Ayling's work did not embrace contract surgeons. Each New Hampshire regiment is taken up separately in numerical order and a brief abstract of the history of each regiment given, followed by the individual histories of its surgeons. After dealing with the various infantry regiments, the cavalry and heavy artillery are briefly considered. The work includes also those physicians of New Hampshire who became United States Volunteers and were commissioned for special work along the line
