Marriott Brosius
Birth: Mar. 7, 1843
Death: Mar. 16, 1901

US Congressman. Born in Colerain Township, Pennsyvania, he joined the Union Army in the fall of 1861, being mustered in as a Private in Company K, 97th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry on November 7, 1861. He received promotions to Corporal on June 29, 1862, and Sergeant on May 6, 1863. He re-enlisted at Fernandia, Florida on February 29, 1864, but was wounded a few months later on May 20, 1864, while his regiment was participating in operations at Bermuda Hundred, Virginia. He received a commission of 2nd Lieutenant, but his wounds facilitated his discharge from the Army on January 2, 1865, and he was never mustered in at his officer's rank. He attended law school after the war, and was admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar in 1868. Practicing in his native Lancaster County, he ran for and was elected to represent Pennsylvania's 10th District in the United States House of Representatives, serving from 1889 until his death in office in 1901 (his seat was subsequently filled by Congressman Henry B. Cassel). (bio by: Russ Dodge)
