civil war enlistment record
I have a record I cannot read/understand the entire line. Most but not the crucial part at the end. Lots on enlist, discharge but what we need to know may be the part we can't read. Any civil war record experts? Englehardt Biel, B Sandusky, Ohio. Found on Family Search and Fold3. Both are blurry. thank you.
It's always better to share the link so people can adjust the image. Here's the link: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-L1DC-JK5?i=102&cc=1880762&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3AQJD5-B3H3
I can only decipher Washington and Ft McHenry. Ft McHenry served as a prisoner of war camp after Antietam and Gettysburg for confederate soldiers and also political prisoners.0
Thank you for posting the link.
Yes, that is all I could read as well. Engelhardt was a union soldier so it seems there were other possibilities. Maybe he was assigned there? Basically, this guy has a record of being on a ship from Germany with his family, having a son baptized (church record), and the military record. He just disappeared. I was hoping this would shed some more light in the hard to read parts, or someone familiar with civil war records would know what this could refer to.0
Have you tried working with the National Park Service database on the Civil War? I think this link will take you to several Biehl Englehart or Biehl Englehardt soldiers. Maybe it will help.
Here's another link to Ohio Civil War records: https://civilwarindex.com/armyoh/rosters/178th_oh_infantry_roster.pdf
There doesn't seem to be a Civil War group within the Community, but, you might try posting in the Military Records group and see if they can help!0
