CROASDALE, Samuel, soldier, born in Pennsylvania; died at Antietam, Maryland, 17 September 1862. He was a lawyer in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Immediately after the president's proclamation of 15 April 1861, he volunteered for three months, and, after the governor's call for nine months' men in the summer of 1862, raised a company in Doylestown, and, upon the organization of the 128th Pennsylvania regiment, was appointed its colonel. After a few weeks' service in camps of instruction near Washington, the emergencies of the invasion of Maryland required the services of the regiment in the field. At Antietam it was assigned an important position, and Colonel Croasdale, having formed his men in line, was leading an assault under a heavy fire, when a ball killed him instantly.
