Military Monday: Henry H Eckman

Henry H. Eckman served the Union during the Civil War as a Private. He enlisted in Company A, Pennsylvania 122nd Infantry Regiment on 11 Aug 1862 and was mustered out on 15 May 1863. A Henry H Eckman also shows up as enlisting in Company I, Pennsylvania 21st Cavalry Regiment on 11 Feb 1864. He was promoted to Full Corporal on 11 Sep 1864 and mustered out on 08 Jul 1865 at Lynchburg, VA.

Census records do show two different Henry H Eckmans. One was from Strasburg Township and the other from Providence Township, Lancaster County. Hence it is quite possible that this is two different Henrys.
