National Light Infantry

Recruited at Pottsville
Mustered in April 18, 1861, Harrisburg


Organized in the summer of 1831, the National Light Infantry was commanded, successively, by Captains Dean, Shoenfelter, Beard, Bland, Pott, and M'Donald. The interest in the organization, which had, for a time, been impaired, was revived under the skillful management of Captain Frank Pott, and the outbreak of the rebellion found the company in efficient training under Captain M'Donald. Its organization was continued after the three months' term of service had expired, and became company "A" of the 96th veteran regiment.
