Andrew Eagan, private, Company G 22nd Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers

From Margaret Orthodox comes the following:
He re-enlisted the following summer, but served for only a brief period. He gave his age at enrollment as 24, which agrees with his birth year of 1838. He was given the rank of First Sergeant no doubt because of his previous service. So you can add this to his memorial:

He later enrolled and mustered in at Philadelphia on September 12, 1862 as the First Sergeant of Company F of the 8th Regiment of the Pennsylvania Militia of 1862. He was discharged on September 25, 1862, on the mustering out of his regiment.
