    Carl Winterschmidt/Charles Wintersmith was my 5th great grandfather. He was a Lieutenant in the Braunschweiger Grenadiers during the Revolutionary War. He fought for the British Army and was captured by the Americans at Saratoga, New York.

    I published a book on the Wintersmith family which covers Carl’s most interesting life, and that of his ancestors and descendants.
