: : I am reseaching an ancestor in the 106 PA Infantry. He was taken prisoner on June 22, 1864 (I think). It may have ben the engagement at Jerusalem Plank Road or Weldon R.R., outside of Petersburg. I wanted to see if anyone knows about this battle or the 106th.

: I've been searching for information since you posted this on Monday, but I've not found anything worthwhile that you probably don't already know. Most of it is about Petersburg, with maybe a paragraph or so about Jerusalem Plank Road. I've nothing on the 106 PA Inf. Perhaps if you could give us your ancestors name, we might be able to dive a little deeper.
My ancestor's name was John Richards. He was in Company H of the 106th PA Infantry. He was taken prisoner somwhere around Petersburg, and sent to Andersonville, where he died in September of 1864. He is buried at Andersonville.
