Company B
George Mueller - Private   
Georg served in the 43rd until the Battle of Shiloh. There he was wounded in both legs. The bullet shattering the bone in one leg and then passing through the tissue of the other leg. His brother Heinrich was a musician and I assume he assisted George to safety. Heinrich was again disabled for whatever reason at Shiloh from a gunshot wound at Wilson''s Creek in Missouri August 10th, 1861. Both brothers survived the war. Georg was the worst casualty as per his pension files he lived in boarding houses and may have been addicted to the pain medicines of the day. All information obtained from the National Archives pension files of both soldiers.
