Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. Born in Louisiana, he began his Civil war service with his enlistment in the 4th Pennsylvania Reserves (33rd Pennsylvania Volunteers) on June 6, 1861. Mustered in as a Private in Company K, he was discharged with a Surgeon's Certificate on December 16, 1861. He rejoined the Union effort on October 9, 1862, when he was mustered in as a Private on Company H, 15th Pennsylvania Volunteer Cavalry. He would go on to be awarded the CMOH for his bravery at Crosbys Creek, Tennessee on January 14, 1864. His citation reads "Captured, single-handed, Confederate Brig. Gen. Robert B. Vance during a charge upon the enemy". He received a promotion to Corporal on March 1, 1863, and to Sergeant on June 90, 1863, and was honorably mustered out on June 21, 1965. His Medal was awarded to him on December 3, 1894, thirty-four years after his capture of the Confederate General. He was one of six 15th Pennsylvania Cavalry soldiers to be awarded the Medal of Honor for bravery during the Civil War (the others being Lieutenant Colonel Charles M. Betts, Private John G. Bourke, Colonel William J. Palmer, 1st Lieutenant Anthony Taylor, and Private John Tweedale). (bio by: Russ Dodge)
