Company C
Charles Lippincott Shinn - Sergeant   
I have extensive info, including a copy of an original tintype of Charles in uniform. I have copied much info from the National Archives including pay stubs etc.

Charles enlisted in July 27, 1861 in Florence, NJ and was issued a horse. In August 1861 he was listed on the Muster Roll as Corporal. In 1863 he suffered sunstroke at the Plains in VA, fell off his horse, and was in the Camp of the Dismounted for a period of time. He was promoted to Sergeant in 1863. His term of service ended in July 1864 and he was discharged in VA.

Later there is correspondence concerning his Invalid Pension (not due to 'vicious habits').

Charles is my great grandfather on my maternal side.
