Hugh Shields - Private   
Hugh Shields' name appeared on a list of Prisoners of War belonging to the Army of Northern Virginia 'who have been this day surrendered by General Robert E. Lee, C.S.A., commanding said Army to Lieut. Genl. U.S. Grant, commanding Armies of the United States. Paroled at Appomattox Court House, Virginia, April 9, 1865. List dated April 10, 1865.'

His wife's Confederate Widow's Pension Application listed that Hugh Shields received an honorable discharge and was surrendered at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865.

He was a cook and a teamster in the army. Many times he was either sick or wounded, but always he returned to his regiment. Apparently he had physical stamina, besides a great deal of tenacity and determination. He was not born in the United States but in Liverpool, England in 1836/1837 of Irish parentage. He came to the U.S. between 1857 and 1860 (probably with a younger brother named Owen) and was trained at Camp Moore in Tangipahoa, Louisiana before going to Virginia to fight. (A brick in his memory and honor has been laid at Camp Moore by our family).

He married Christanna Flick in New Orleans in 1867. He worked as a foreman at the bakery of Margaret Haughery. He died on March 14, 1882 and is believed to have been buried in Lafayette Cemetery Number 2 in New Orleans, La.
