Source/Notes:

  1. 106th Pennsylvania Volunteers, Company D Muster Roll, www.pa-roots.com/pacw/infantry/106th/106thcod.html.: This source shows Irvin’s wound occurring on June 10 rather than June 11.
  2. 106th Pennsylvania Volunteers, Company A Muster Roll, www.pa-roots.com/pacw/infantry/106th/106thcoa.html.: This source mentions Sizell was wounded on June 17 rather than June 16.
  3. 106th Pennsylvania Volunteers, Company F Muster Roll, www.pa-roots.com/pacw/infantry/106th/106thcof.html.: This source does not mention the amputation, but shows Starr was discharged on a Surgeon’s Certificate on January 15, 1865, almost certainly as a result of this amputation.
  4. 106th Pennsylvania Volunteers, Company F Muster Roll, www.pa-roots.com/pacw/infantry/106th/106thcof.html.: This source does not mention the June 16 wound, but mentions McCoy was captured at the Battle of Jerusalem Plank Road on June 22, subsequently escaped, and then drowned in the James River trying to escape on July 2, 1864.
  5. 106th Pennsylvania Volunteers, Company D Muster Roll, www.pa-roots.com/pacw/infantry/106th/106thcod.html.: This source does not even register Trout’s wounding on June 16.
  6. SOPO Editor’s Note: I cannot make out the company and part of the name, but I also cannot find anyone with the first name Lewis and a last name starting with S.  If you can identify this man, please Contact me at the link above.
  7. 106th Pennsylvania Volunteers, Company E Muster Roll, www.pa-roots.com/pacw/infantry/106th/106thcoe.html.
  8. 106th Pennsylvania Volunteers, Company E Muster Roll, www.pa-roots.com/pacw/infantry/106th/106thcoe.html.: This source does not register the June 16 wound, but Kephart was captured at Jerusalem Plank Road on June 22, 1864.
  9. 106th Pennsylvania Volunteers, Company K Muster Roll, www.pa-roots.com/pacw/infantry/106th/106thcof.html.: This source does not mention the June 18 wound.
  10. 106th Pennsylvania Volunteers, Company K Muster Roll, www.pa-roots.com/pacw/infantry/106th/106thcof.html.: This source shows Darragh eventually succumbed to his wound on July 14, 1864.
  11. 106th Pennsylvania Volunteers, Company A Muster Roll, www.pa-roots.com/pacw/infantry/106th/106thcoa.html.: It looks like Mellon was later killed or mortally wounded on June 22, 1864 at the Battle of Jerusalem Plank Road.
  12. 106th Pennsylvania Volunteers, Company D Muster Roll, www.pa-roots.com/pacw/infantry/106th/106thcod.html.
  13. 106th Pennsylvania Volunteers, Company A Muster Roll, www.pa-roots.com/pacw/infantry/106th/106thcoa.html.: This source agrees on the wounding date, and further notes that Fesmire died at Annapolis, MD on June 22, 1864.
  14. 106th Pennsylvania Volunteers, Company F Muster Roll, www.pa-roots.com/pacw/infantry/106th/106thcof.html.: This source does not mention the June 18 wound.
  15. 106th Pennsylvania Volunteers, Field and Staff Officers Muster Roll, www.pa-roots.com/pacw/infantry/106th/106thofficers.html.: This source does not even show a wound, so Steel must have been very slightly wounded.
