Company A
Charles Henry Fosler - Private   
According to C. Arthur Newcomer in his book, 'Cole's Cavalry, or Three Years in the Saddle in the Shenandoah Valley,' Charles Fosler was instrumental in rescuing his commanding officer, Henry Cole, when his horse bolted and raced toward enemy lines. Born at sea in U.S. waters on a ship from Germany (parents were from Baden), Charles settled in Pennsylvania, at some point moved to Maryland and joined Cole's Cavalry in Western Maryland. He was wounded several times. First he was hit by a bullet in the arm, then in an ambush by Mosby's Raiders, his horse was shot out from under him, and he suffered a severe wound to the head. He apparently also suffered a saber wound in the head during a cavalry clash. Refusing to go home, he was placed on light duty for the remainder of the war, and was honorably discharged in June of 1865. He is my maternal g-g-grandfather.
