He immigrated to the United States in 1841 (10). He was a naturalized citizen by 1870 (8).
When he enlisted, he was a farmer (3).
When he enlisted, he was 5 feet 2-1/2 inches tall, and had a dark complexion, brown [?] eyes, and black hair (3).

He enlisted for three years, at Lancaster, Pennsylvania (3). His service was credited to the ninth congressional district (3). He was a private in company I of the 118th Pennsylvania (4, 7).
On 2 June 1865, he was transferred from the 118th Pennsylvania Infantry (1, 2, 3, 4). He reported for duty on 3 June 1865 (3). He has last been paid on 31 December 1864 by Major Holman, and had drawn clothes to the amount of $54.90 since 31 August 1864 (3). He was a private in company D of the 91st Pennsylvania (1, 12).

In 1890, he was living in the 3rd ward of Columbia, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania (5).
On 22 May 1891, he applied successfully from Pennsylvania for a pension (6, 7).

A Henry Shubert living in Lancaster, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, died on 13 March 1888 (Find a Grave memorial 41823879 (accessed 7 April 2011), quoting his death notice, Martinsburg Herald 22 March 1888). He was therefore not the Henry Shubert who served in the 91st, since that Henry Shubert was alive in 1890 (5) and died on 22 May 1913 (7). He was also 67 years old at death, and therefore born about 1821, which makes him older than the Henry Shubert who served in the 91st. He was an auctioneer, and prominent member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and was survived by his wife, two daughters, and two sons (ibid). He was buried in the Lancaster Cemetery (ibid). I have found several census entries for this (wrong) Henry Shubert:
