Moses F. Wheelwright
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 19, 1826
Death: Oct. 11, 1895

Moses Wheelwright was a veteran of the 27th Me. Infantry. The book 'A Shower of Stars' by John Pullen was about the 27th. The men were awarded the Medal of Honor for extending thier enlistment. Even though less than half of the men extended, the whole regiment was awarded medals because of an error. In 1917 a review board revoked all of the medals because extending did not meet the requirements to qualify for the medal anyway. Moses Wheelwright was not one of the men who extended.
