Joseph P. Fellows was born on March 15, 1839 in Wilmot, New Hampshire. He was residing in Bristol when he enlisted as a Private in Company C, 12th New Hampshire Infantry on August 20, 1862. He served in the commissary and quartermaster departments throughout the war and was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant on June 21, 1865 but was never mustered at that rank. He was mustered out on June 21, 1865 at Richmond, Virginia.

After the war he lived in Manchester, New Hampshire and worked as a blacksmith. He died there on April 25, 1911 and is buried in Pine Grove Cemetery.

The 12th New Hampshire was assigned to the 3rd Corps of the Army of the Potomac where it saw its first action at Fredericksburg.

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 saw action at Williamsburg, Swift Creek, Drewry’s Bluff, Fort Stevens, Cold Harbor and Petersburg.    [ad]
