Company E
Peter Campbell - Private   
I found his discharge papers the other day in my Grandparents attic in NH. These papers say that he was part of the Rhode Island 7th Volunteers Company E. It says that he was mustered into service Sep. 6th 1862 and he was discharged on Dec. 17 1862 due to disability. I believe that puts him at the battle of Fredricksburg. It's signed at the bottom by Elisha Dyer or Byer Jr.
Another interesting fact is that the RI 7th fought with the NH 9th out of Concord, NH. Shortly after he was discharged Peter packed up his family and moved to Concord, NH where my family has been ever since.

Captain Edwin Livingston Hunt, son of Livingston and Eliza Carpenter Hunt, was born at 'Hunt's Mills,' Seekonk, Mass., but now East Providence, R. I., Feb. 22, 1835. He had two sisters and two brothers, William Henry Hunt, who served in the First Rhode Island Cavalry from the beginning to the end of its existence, and J. Newton Hunt, of Battery F, Eleventh, and Second Rhode Island Volunteers.

Young Hunt enlisted as private in Company I, Aug. 18, 1862, was mustered in September 6th, promoted second lieutenant of same October 24th, and, in January, 1863, was in command of It. March 1st he was commissioned first lieutenant of same, and May 3, 1864, its captain, but was not mustered as such until November 1st. He was transferred to Company E by order dated Oct 21, 1864. He is borne on the rolls as responsible for Company C, Fourth Rhode Island Volunteers, during the months of October, November, and December, 1864, and January, 1865, and for Company D, Seventh Rhode Island Volunteers, during February and March.

On the arrival of the regiment at Cincinnati from its Vicksburg campaign, Lieutenant Hunt received a sick leave of absence for thirty days, which was subsequently extended fifteen days. He rejoined his command at Lexington, Ky., but was informed he was on detached duty as assistant provost marshal, and directed to report to Capt. A. M. Channell, provost marshal. He remained in that position until Dec. 24, 1863, when he was relieved by Lieut E. T. Allen. That very day the regiment started on its severe march to Point Burnside, and, consequently, he shared in its hardships with his men. For a number of days succeeding Jan. 20, 1864, he discharged the duties of post adjutant during the absence of the regular incumbent of that position. January 30th he accompanied a working party sent out to repair the roads toward Knoxville. He returned north with his regiment and corps and participated in the battles of the Wilderness, Spottsylvania, North Anna River, and Cold Harbor, where he received a sunstroke, and whence he was sent first to Fredericksburg and next to Annapolis. When convalescent, by order of the War Department he was appointed assistant provost marshal of that city, but was relieved in time to take part in the battle of Poplar Spring Church September 30th. With the exception of a brief leave of absence (until May 15, 1865,) granted on account of a wound received at Petersburg, April 2d, Captain Hunt continued with the regiment until its final muster out.

Subsequent to the close of the Rebellion, and for many years, Captain Hunt served on the police force of the City of Providence. Later he was engaged in the insurance business, and still later for fifteen years he was associated with the Inman Brothers, civil engineers and contractors, 27 Thames Street, New York City.
