Civil War Soldiers

It cannot accurately be determined how people living in Saulsville were involved in the Civil War. It appears, according to Mary K Bowmans History Book, taken from notes compiled by GP Goode, that most people living in Saulsville area chose to remain neutral, hearing and seeing what was taking place in adjoining areas of Wyoming County with ? going on between the Union and the Federalist, with the Federals having the upper hand because of having the most sympathizers.

*The reason for the ambush is unknown but it appears that soldiers on either side used personal feelings not associated with the war for an excuse to kill. It is suspected that Sol Mullins shot himself in the heart while cleaning his rifle at Wiley Phillips home while talking to Wiley's wife wondering who the killer was since he didnt kill Dave Meadows himself, or so he told Mrs Phillips
