|Death: ||May 3, 1863|
Company D, 125th Pennsylvania Infantry
Previously to engagement in this area, Pvt Oswalt survived the bloodiest single day of the War at the Battle of Antietam on September 17, 1862.
Killed at the Battle of Chancellorsville on May 3, 1863, the second bloodiest single day of the War.
For a variety of reasons, the identities of 80% of the Union soldiers in Fredericksburg National Cemetery are unknown.
As was the case for most of them, the battlefield was abandoned in the favor of the enemy, and the victors gave less favor to the Union casualties than to their own.
