A Tribute to Eli from his descendant and long time supporter of the PRVCHS, Bruce Bronson of Olathe, Kansas. The following articles are contributed to this website at the generosity of Bruce.
Mr. Bronson also informed us that Eli “…contracted Typhoid while on a march in Virginia and was sent to a Union Hospital in Fairfax, VA where he languished for a time before being sent home just prior to his unit being sent to Antietam.”
Currently a resident of Burke, Virginia - I'm originally from the City of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I have been a student of the Pennsylvania Reserves since 1997 and thoroughly enjoy telling their story. By trade I'm a former IT Professional but presently working as a Letter Carrier for the United States Postal Service.
