Henry P. Randall was born in Center Harbor, New Hampshire in 1845. He was listed as 19 years old when he enlisted as a Corporal in Company H, 12th New Hampshire Infantry.

The 12th New Hampshire was assigned to the 3rd Corps of the Army of the Potomac where it saw its first action at Fredericksburg. Not long afterward, on January 1, 1863, Randall was promoted to Sergeant.

The regiment suffered heavily at Chancellorsville on May 3, 1863 and at Gettysburg where the regiment defended the area around the Klingle farm along the Emmitsburg Road suffering 17 killed, 68 wounded, 3 captured and 18 missing.

In December of 1863 the 12th was transferred to the 18th Corps and on February 22, 1864 Randall was again promoted. This time to 1st Sergeant. The 12th saw action at Williamsburg, Swift Creek, Drewry’s Bluff, Fort Stevens, Cold Harbor and Petersburg. After the war’s end 1st Sergeant Randall was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant on May 18, 1865 but he was never mustered at that rank.  He was mustered out at Richmond, Va. On June 21, 1865.

After the war Randall married and relocated to St. Albans, Vermont where he died in 1921. He rests there today in Greenwood Cemetery.    [ad]
