George W. Leland
Birth: 1834
Death: Mar. 18, 1880

Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served in the Union Navy. His citation reads "Served on board the USS Lehigh, Charleston Harbor, 16 November 1863, during the hazardous task of freeing the Lehigh, which had grounded and was under heavy enemy fire from Fort Moultrie. Rowing the small boat whih was used in the hazardous task of transferring hawsers from the Lehigh to the Nahant, Leland twice succeeded in making the trip, only to find that each had been in vain when the hawsers were cut by enemy fire and chaffing." (bio by: Don Morfe)
