District of Columbia
District Of Columbia, USA
Death: Apr. 6, 1902

Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He was awarded the CMOH for his heroism on two different occasions. On May 23, 1862, while a Sergeant in the 1st Maryland Volunteer Infantry, he burned a bridge at Fort Royal, Virginia, despite being severely wounded and under constant fire. Confederate forces were prevented from using it. Later in the war, on August 19, 1864 at Weldon Railroad, Virginia, while a 1st Lieutenant, he voluntarily took the place of a disabled fellow officer on a dangerous reconnaissance mission behind enemy lines. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
