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]
