106th Pennsylvania Infantry – Pennsylvania Memorial at Gettysburg

Posted By on May 11, 2011

(Part  27 of an ongoing series on the Battle of Gettysburg).  Around the base of the Pennsylvania Memorial at Gettysburg are a series of plaques which, by regiment and company, note the names of every soldier who was present at the Battle of Gettysburg.  This post will present the plaque recognizing the men who served in the 106th Pennsylvania Infantry.  By clicking on the plaque it should enlarge so the names can be more clearly read.  Following the plaque is a list of the men who have thus far been identified as eligible for inclusion in this Civil War Research Project who, it is believed, served for a time in the 106th Pennsylvania Infantry .  Not all the names may appear on the Pennsylvania Memorial plaques.  If a name does not appear, it could be that the soldier did serve in the 106th Pennsylvania Infantry, but was not part of the regiment during its days at Gettysburg – or it could mean that the soldier was erroneous included in the 106th Pennsylvania Infantry list.  There could also be errors on the plaque.  Readers are invited to submit comments about any names appearing below, or on the plaque, especially if they believe the soldier was from the Lykens Valley area and should be included in this study.

Information for this post was taken from the files of the Civil War Research Project.  A separate digital file is kept on each of the above-named men.  Information is sought on any men from the Lykens Valley area who were soldiers or sailors during the Civil War.

    Greetings, We have known of Corporal Samuel Magargle’s inscription on this plaque and have been looking for it online. I have finally been able to tie our genealogical lines as far back as the Civil War and beyond to our family’s presence in The Revolution crossing the Delaware participating in the Battle of Trenton. We’re still looking for the ‘boat(s)’ we came over on but we’re making progress thanks to folks like you! We thank you very much for providing this enlargeable photo of the 106th’s plaque and have just one question. Is there some sort of list somewhere that would state on which side of the memorial the various regimental plaques are located? The reason for asking is because there are other variations of our surname I have done research on and found other ancestors who were also there at the Gettysburg Battle from Penn. Thank You So Much Again, Kyle Mac Argel
