Joseph C. Hibson
Birth: Aug. 3, 1843
Death: Apr. 14, 1911

Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served as a Private in the Union Army in Company C, 48th New York Infantry. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for action on July 13,14 and 18, 1863 near Fort Wagner, South Carolina. His citation reads "While voluntarily performing picket duty under fire, 13 July 1863, was attacked and his surrender demanded, but he killed his assailant. The day following Hibson responded to a call for a volunteer to reconnoiter the enemy's position, and went within the enemy's lines under fire and was exposed to great danger. On 18 July voluntarily exposed himself with great gallantry during an assault, and received three wounds that permanently disabled him for active service." (bio by: Don Morfe)
