Thomas Lee Hall
Birth: 1893
Fort Mill
York County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Oct. 8, 1918

World War I Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He was killed in action. He served as a Sergeant in the United States Army in Company G, 118th Infantry, 30th Division. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for action on October 8, 1918 near Montbrehain, France. His citation reads "Having overcome two machine-gun nests under his skillful leadership, Sgt. Hall's platoon was stopped 800 yards from its final objective by machine-gun fire of particular intensity. Ordering his men to take cover in a sunken road, he advanced alone on the enemy machine-gun post and killed fire members of the crew with his bayonet and thereby made possible the further advance of the line. While attacking another machine-gun nest later in the day this gallant soldier was mortally wounded."
