Ancestor Info
Name: Isaac Denton ShieldsRank: 2nd Sergeant Company: E

Isaac Denton Shields was my great great grandfather, enlisted with the 4th Ark infantry and according to the book by Gammage (surgeon of the 4th) fought in every major battle that the regiment participated in during the war. After what remained of the regiment was surrendered with General Joseph Johnston's army after the Battle of Bentonville, in NC, he went home to Hempstead county Arkansas and lived until Dec.of 1911, having 19 children by two wives. He is buried there in a cemetery in Hempstead county, not far from his home town Washington Ark. Interestingly, he was born in March of 1834 in Cumberland KY, a triplet, and with his family moved to Washington Ark. One of his triplet brothers died at the age of 10. His remaining twin brother like he, enlisted in the Confederate Army (Charles S. Shields), in the 24th Ark. infantry regiment in June of 1862 and unfortunately died in camp of illness on Oct 2, 1862 in Jefferson Co. Ark and is buried in the local Confederate Cemetery there.
