Charles E. McIntire was born in Lancaster, New Hampshire on May 15, 1833. He enlisted as a private in Company G, 2nd New Hampshire Infantry on April 20, 1863.

During the fighting in the Peach Orchard at Gettysburg on July 2, 1863, McIntire was wounded in the leg.  He was discharged for disability on June 2, 1865 at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

After the war he returned to Lancaster where he raised a family and worked as Registrar of Deeds for his county. It is noted in his record that sometime after the war the leg that was wounded at Gettysburg had to be amputated. McIntire died on October 17, 1907 and is buried in Lancaster’s Summer Street Cemetery.

The 2nd was a hard fought regiment seeing action at 1st Bull Run, Williamsburg, Oak Grove, Gaines’ Mill, White Oak Swamp, Malvern Hill, 2nd Bull Run, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg where the 2nd bore the brunt of the assault on the Peach Orchard. After Gettysburg the 2nd garrisoned Point Lookout for a time before returning to the army to fight at Drewry’s Bluff, Cold Harbor and Petersburg.    [ad] [ph:L]
