Back for Round 2

It's been awhile- I had a crazy busy summer beginning with a 2 week excursion through the South for a Civil War class.  Which, of course, can be incorporated into my family history research.  My great-great-great-grandfather, Menzo Shaul, and his brother Levi Shaul, were both enlisted in the 53rd Illinois Infantry Co. A during the Civil War.  When we visited the Vicksburg Battlefield I was able to find both of the brother's names inside the Illinois monument although their names were spelled Shaw instead of Shaul.
