Fredrick F. Schumacher - Private   
Name misspelled in government records:
Private Fredrick 'Shoemaker' should read Schumacher.
Description: Payne's Farm and New Hope Church were the first and heaviest clashes of the Mine Run Campaign. In late November 1863, Meade attempted to steal a march through the Wilderness and strike the right flank of the Confederate army south of the Rapidan River. Maj. Gen. Jubal A. Early in command of Ewell's Corps marched east on the Orange Turnpike to meet the advance of William French's III Corps near Payne's Farm. Carr's division (US) attacked twice. Johnson's division (CS) counterattacked but was scattered by heavy fire and broken terrain. After dark, Lee withdrew to prepared field fortifications along Mine Run. The next day the Union army closed on the Confederate position. Skirmishing was heavy, but a major attack did not materialize. Meade concluded that the Confederate line was too strong to attack and retired during the night of December 1-2, ending the winter campaign.
Fred (Shoemaker) Schumacher’s medical file. He was severely wounded in the right thigh on May 5th 1864 while fighting in Wilderness, Va- also called Mine Run. Transferred to G H Phila, PA, May 14,1864 and spent five months in the hospital. On July 29 to August 1st he received further medical attention for the same wound caused by a musket rifle ball and remained in the hospital for five months. He later received a government pension beginning at $12 and ending at $90 per month as of June 4, 1927- his last check.
