Richard Enderlin
Birth: Jan. 11, 1843, Germany
Death: Feb. 11, 1930
Chillicothe
Ross County
Ohio, USA

Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. Born in Germany and emigrated to Ohio, in 1862 he enlisted in Company B of the 73rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry. On July 2, 1863, he was recommended for the Medal of Honor for his bravery at the Battle of Gettysburg. During the battle Private George Nixon (also a member of the 73rd Ohio and the grandfather of President Richard Nixon) was wounded near the Confederate lines. Other soldiers ignored the wounded Nixon's cries for help due to the intense enemy fire. Private Enderlin volunteered to attempt to rescue him and, that evening, crawled to Nixon and pulled him to safety. He was immediately promoted to Sergeant and recommended for the Medal of Honor, which he received in 1897. He was an active member of the Grand Army of the Republic, held the rank of Colonel in that organization, and was active in his community and in many philanthropic works. He died at his home in Chillicothe in 1930 at the age of 87. (bio by: Fred Shoemaker)
