The First New Hampshire Heavy Artillery Regiment was an American Civil War regiment, first raised in 1863 for the defenses of Portsmouth Harbor in New Hampshire and Maine.

History

The regiment began as a single company, mustered into service on 22 July, 1863, and stationed at Fort Constitution. On 17 September, 1863, a second company was mustered in, and stationed at Fort McClary in Kittery Point, Maine. They remained at these posts until the following spring when, on 6 May, 1864, both companies were ordered to Washington, D.C., for the defense of the capital. In August 1864, Ira McL. Barton, the captain of Company B, requested further recruits, and by November of that year had the required number of companies to be organized into a proper regiment. They were assigned to different divisions around Washington. At the end of November, Battery A returned to Portsmouth Harbor, and Company B did the same the following February. On 15 June, 1865, the regiment was mustered out, arriving in New Hampshire on the 19th for final pay and discharge. [State of NH Adjutant General's Report 1866 Vol.2 page 928-932]
