Adolph Rosengarten was born on December 29, 1838.

At the outbreak of the Civil War he enlisted as 1st Sergeant in the Anderson Independent Company of Pennsylvania Cavalry. When the company was enlarged to a regiment Rosengarten was instrumental in raising recruits and was commissioned Major on November 13, 1862.

On December 29, 1862 during the battle of Stones River a battalion of the 15th was ambushed by some South Carolina Confederates. Riding with his battalion to their relief Rosengarten was killed in the fighting.

His remains were brought to Philadelphia where they were interred in Laurel Hill Cemetery.  [ad]
