Records show that after Hunt recovered from his illness he enlisted in the same Company and regiment on August 8, 1863 and served with them until mustered out at Hall’s Hill, Virginia on July 1, 1865. During Hunt’s second term of service the 10th New Jersey served with the 7th Corps Department of Virginia and the 6th Corps Army of the Potomac. They saw action at Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, Monocacy, Winchester, Opequan, Cedar Creek and Petersburg.

Nothing is known of Joseph Hunt’s post-war life other than that he died on August 26, 1916 and is buried in Beverly National Cemetery in Beverly, New Jersey. [ad] [ph:L]
