Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served as a Sergeant Major in the Union Army in Company A, 46th Massachusetts Infantry. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for action on May 23, 1863 at New Bern, North Carolina. His citation reads "By his courage and judicious disposition of his guard of 16 men, stationed in a small earthwork at the head of the bridge, Bryant held in check and repulsed for a half hour a fierce attack of a strong force of the enemy, thus probably saving the city of New Bern from capture." (bio by: Don Morfe)
