Company A
Adam Reed Slemmer - Private   
When formed, the members of this unit enlisted for 6 months. The morning of the first day of the Battle of Bull Run, the men's enlistment's were over. They were in the trenches at Manassas, ready for battle and refused to fight. The Commander begged the men to fight, but it was voted not to extend the enlistment. The men left the trenches, boarded trains and returned to their home. The commander, Col John F Hartranft, stayed on, won the Medal of Honor for his actions, became a General and later becamse the Gov of PA, but always felt dishonored and betrayed by these men. Adam Reed was discharged and immediately enlisted with his brother in the 72nd.
