Pennsylvania State Archives I will be spending the day researching the 56th Pennsylvania Regiment files from the Civil War at the Pennsylvania State Archives. Looking for some documents and information pertaining to my 3rd great-grandfather David Sprouse who was in Co. D of the 56th which is debated they fired first volley of shots at battle of Gettysburg. If I have time I will also do some research on the 130th Pennsylvania Regiment which another great -grandfather was a part of. Looking forward to this research as i haven’t researched Civil War Regiments in some time.
