Horatio Nelson Young
Birth: Jul. 19, 1845
Death: Jul. 3, 1913

Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. Served in the Union Navy as a Seaman on board the “USS Lehigh”. He was awarded the CMOH for his bravery on November 16, 1863 in Charleston Harbor, South Carolina. His citation reads “He was involved during the hazardous task of freeing the Lehigh, which had grounded, and was under heavy enemy fire from Fort Moultrie. After several previous attempts had been made, Young succeeded in passing in a small boat from the Lehigh to the Nahant with a line bent on a hawser. This courageous action while under severe enemy fire enabled the Lehigh to be freed from her helpless position”. His Medal was awarded to him on April 16, 1864. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
