24th Arkansas Infantry (CSA)
Ancestor Info
Name: Charles S ShieldsRank: Private Company:

Charles S. Shields was triplet brother of Isaac Denton Shields (4th Ark Infantry) --born in March 1834 in Cumberland KY and moved with his family to Hempstead County (town Washington) AR. The other triplet brother died in childhood at the age of 10. Charles enlisted as a private in the 24th Ark Infantry at its formation, I think in June of 1862. He like so many other civil war soldiers died of disease in camp with his regiment in Jefferson County Ark on Oct 2, 1862 and is buried in the local confederate cemetery--White Sulfur Springs Cemetery. He was survived by his wife and had 3 children, one of whom died before the war as an infant, and the third child was born a mere 5 days before my great great uncle's demise, so sad.
