Birth: 1839

Death: Dec. 22, 1891
Jefferson Barracks
St. Louis County

Indian Wars Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He was awarded the CMOH for his bravery in action at Wounded Knee Creek, South Dakota, on December 29, 1890. His citation reads: "Conspicuous and gallant conduct in battle." He re-enlisted a number of times in several infantry and cavalry units. He was discharged from the 7th United States Cavalry at Fort Riley, Kansas, on October 4, 1891, and re-enlisted at the St. Louis Powder Depot on October 12, 1891. He died there two months later of "double pneumonia." He was buried under the name of "George Holday," but that has now been corrected, and he has a new Medal of Honor headstone. (bio by: Kent Kooi)
