John Hyland
Birth: 1819
Death: Aug. 10, 1867

Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served as a Assistant Gunner in the Union Navy. His citation reads "Served as seaman on board the USS Signal which was attacked by field batteries and sharpshooters and destroyed in Red River, 5 May 1864. Proceeding up the Red River, the USS Signal engaged a large force of enemy field batteries and sharpshooters, returning their fire until the ship was totally disabled, at which time the white flag was raised. Although wounded, Hyland courageously went in full view of several hundred sharpshooters and let go the anchor, and again to slip the cable, when he was again wounded by the raking enemy fire."  (bio by: Don Morfe)
