                                                 Civil War Data

Fellow Researchers, I would like to share some information that was sent to me. I believe this is really wonderful site to check out. There are not  many places today as there was in the past  that will help you for FREE! Thank you Commander Meehan for the wonderful offer.

My name is Dan Meehan, I am the Commander for Charles W. Canney Camp No. 5, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, headquartered in Rochester, N.H.

Charles W. Canney and his family moved from Tuftonboro, NH to Rochester two years before the Civil War. Charles was a member of Co. D, 5th N.H.V.I., his father Edward was a member of the 6th N.H.V.I.

Charles was killed during the battle of Cold Harbor and was buried there.

The original Sons of Veterans camp in Rochester was formed in the late 1800's was named after Charles W. Canney. They finally disbanded around 1914.

A little over three years ago myself and some other Civil War historians decided to re-form the Camp with the original name. We are dedicated to promoting and preserving the memory of the Union Veteran and the Civil War.

We do FREE Civil War veteran look-ups and all information can be found at

Thank you
Dan Meehan
Camp 5, Commander
