Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served as a Private in the Union Army in Company D, 37th Massachusetts Infantry. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for action on April 6, 1865 at Deatonville (Sailors Creek), Virginia. His citation reads "Saved the life of the adjutant of his regiment by voluntarily going beyond the line and there killing one of the enemy then in the act of firing upon the wounded officer. Was assailed by several of the enemy, run throught the body with a bayonet, and pinned to the ground, but while so situated he shot and killed his assailant." After the war, he returned to Chesterfield, Massachusetts where he worked for H.B. Smith as a blacksmith and woodturner for over 20 years. (bio by: Don Morfe)
