Henry Wingerter - Private   
Henry enlisted in 1861 and fought in all the battles of the 83rd Indiana Infantry up until 4 June 1863 when he died of wounds received during the Vicksburg Campaign. His burial site is unknown. I hope it is in the Vicksburg National Cemetery. He left a wife and four or five children behind when he went off to serve his country. His wife Margaret applied for a pension in late 1863. Henry was a brother to my great great great grandfather John Wingerter. They emigrated to the US from Deutschland in the 1850's.
