Bolden Rush Harrison
Birth: Apr. 26, 1886
Hardin County
Tennessee, USA
Death: Jan. 26, 1952

Action against Outlaws in the Philippines Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served as a seaman in the United States Navy. His citation reads "While attached to the USS Pampang, Harrison was one of a shore party moving in to capture Mundang, on the island of Basilan, P.I., 24 September 1911. Harrison instantly responded to the calls for help when the advance scout party investigating a group of nipa huts close to the trail was suddenly taken under point-blank fire and rushed by approximately 20 enemy Moros attacking from inside the huts and from other concealed positions. Armed with a double-barrelled shotgun, he concentrated his blasting fire on the outlaws, destroying three of the Moros and assisting in the rout of the remainder. By his aggressive charging of the enemy under heavy fire and in the face of great odds, Harrison contributed materially to the success of the engagement." (bio by: Don Morfe)
