Alexander H. Truett
Birth: Jul. 4, 1833
Maryland, USA
Death: Dec. 5, 1898, USA

Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He was born in Baltimore, Maryland and entered the Union Navy in Maryland. He served as a Coxswain. His citation reads "On board the USS Richmond during action against rebel forts and gunboats and with the ram Tennessee in Mobile Bay, 5 August 1864. Despite damage to his ship, the loss of several men on board as enemy fire raked her decks, Truett performed his duties with skill and courage throughout a furious two-hour battle which resulted in the surrender of the rebel ram Tennessee and in the damaging and destruction of batteries at Fort Morgan." (bio by: Don Morfe)
