When a draft was ordered in 1863, although the spirit of patriotism had somewhat waned, he recruited the 18th Infantry, the 1st Heavy Artillery, and the 1st Cavalry, which brought the whole number of New Hampshire troops supplied during the war up to 31,000, about 10 per cent. of the population. He died in Concord, N. H., April 17, 1867.
