In the war of 1812-’15, only one man, George Washington Phillips, enlisted from the town, and died in the service previous to the close of the war. A draft was made, however, for soldiers to go to the defense of Portsmouth, when the town sent out twelve men, paying a salary of $15.00 per month- The British did not attack Portsmouth, as was apprehended, so the soldiers returned to their homes after a few weeks absence.

During our late civil struggle, the town had 115 men placed to its credit. Of the sixty-one volunteers, eleven were killed in battle, six were dangerously wounded, two died of wounds, three were discharged on account of wounds, seven died of disease, six were discharged for disability, two died at home, of disease contracted while in the service, three were made prisoners, one was drowned, and two deserted, making a total death loss of twenty-three; of the thirty-two recruits procured abroad by the selectmen, two were killed in battle, two were discharged for disability, one died of disease, three were captured by the enemy, seven deserted, one was slightly wounded, and three were not accounted for; of the twenty-seven drafted men, thirteen were exempted, twelve furnished substitutes, one paid commutation, one deserted; of the twelve substitutes, two were wounded, seven deserted, one was discharged, and two were mustered out of service; and of the ten volunteer substitutes, furnished by different individuals, one died of wounds, four deserted, one was captured by the enemy, one was absent sick, two were not accounted for, and one was mustered out of service.
