56th Pennsylvania Volunteers Co. “D” Muster Roll

I spent much of the day immersed in the civil war records of the 56th Pennsylvania Regiment, particularly Company D which  my 3rd great-grandfather was a part of. I was able to look through many folders containing muster rolls, discharge certificates, hospital rolls, commision letters of officers, and general orders as from General Meade.wpid-20150918_124547.jpg This was a producive day for me but I have a long way to go to finish project. I am reconstructing Company D through Actual Muster rolls and trying to locate where each member is buried and wrap all information into a book. The 56th regiment as there regimental monument at Gettysburg states were the first to a fire a volley of shots at Gettysburg on the first day of battle. I have always found this regiment fascinating and really enjoy researching the history of the regiment. I Will be making return trip to archives again next week. CPNCTEmUcAAAKBw
