May is National Military Appreciation Month. Today I searched military records on Ancestry.com for ECKMAN veterans from Lancaster County, PA. Today I chose Henry H Eckman.
Henry enlisted in Company A, Pennsylvania 122nd Infantry Regiment on 11 Aug 1862. He was mustered out on 15 May 1863. Henry was a Private.
Henry is quite a common name amon the Eckmans. Hence, I have not been able to determine much more about this particular Henry at this time. There are a few Henrys listed in the Civil War Draft Registrations. However again without being able to connect dates or locations, I am not comfortable connecting them ... yet!
