1st Pennsylvania Light Artillery      
Company A
Adolph William Drollinger - Private   
He enlisted in Capt. Cooper's Battery Independent. Battalion (later named Battery A PA Light Artillery) Pennsylvania Artillery (100 days 1864) serving 19 May 1864 to 29 August 1864. Physical description 5 foot 9 1/2 inches tall, had brown hair and hazel eyes. Although his service record is slim it is a safe bet that he served in the fortifications erected around the Pittsburgh area to protect the steel industry and the Allegheny Arsenal. Some of those Forts were named and are familiar to native Pittsburghers. Forts Brunot, McKever, Fulton, Black, Smalls, McKinley, McKnight, Mechanic were the names that came down in an article in the now extinct Pittsburgh Press by George Swetnam. There were some 20 redoubts and 13 Batteries on a Corps of Engineers map made by a Captain Craighill. There is a frustrating one liner that teases. A Camp Brooks is mentioned but no location is given. ' Battery A was mentioned as being stationed there.'
