Civil War Union Brevet Brigadier General. When the Civil War began, Shoup raised a company which became company E of the 114th Illinois Infantry. He was elected and commissioned captain upon its organization and was promoted through different grades to eventually become commanding Colonel of the regiment from May 11, 1865 until it was mustered out and discharged on August 15, 1865. Under his command, the 114th Illinois Infantry participated in the occupation of Montgomery, Alabama. On July 17, 1865 it was ordered to Vicksburg, Mississippi to be mustered out. The unit was mustered into service on September 18, 1862 at Camp Butler in Illinois. They were ordered to Memphis, Tennessee where they did picket duty for three months. In late November of 1862, they started on the Tallahatchie campaign as part of the First Brigade of General Lanman's division. On May 2, 1863, the regiment took a position to the rear of Vicksburg, Mississippi. They participated in the battles of Jackson, Wyatt, Guntown, and Tupelo in Mississippi. The unit also pursued General Sterling Price from the Arkansas border to Kansas City and back to St. Louis. They participated in the surrender of Mobile, Alabama in early May of 1865. At the conclusion of the war, Shoup became a farmer and county sheriff in Sangamon county, Illinois. (bio by: Thomas Fisher)
