      Siege of Petersburg Documents Which Mention This Unit:
        Sources:
        1. History of the One Hundred and Sixth Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers, page 279, 286: This source says the 184th PA was in this brigade until it was disbanded and then moved to the First Brigade, but other sources refute this, including the Official Records and Dyer’s Compendium.
        2. The War of the Rebellion: A Compilation of the Official Records of the Union and Confederate Armies, Volume XL, Part 1 (Serial Number 80), page 221: The official Records order of battle shows the 184th Pennsylvania in the First Brigade, Second Division, II Corps throughout June. Other sources back up this claim, and it appears as if the 184th PA was in the First Brigade, Second Division, II Corps throughout the Siege of Petersburg.
