At Gettysburg, the 2nd New Hampshire entered battle with 353 soldiers.
In under three hours, 47 were killed, 136 wounded and 36 men went missing; of the 24 officers, only three were not killed or wounded. Due to their high losses, the 2nd New Hampshire was assigned to guard duty at Point Lookout, Maryland with the 5th and 12th New Hampshire Volunteer Regiments.
