He was awarded the Medal of Honor for action on May 9, 1864 at Varnells Station, Georgia. His citation reads "While his regiment was retreating, voluntarily gave up his horse to his brigade commander who had been unhorsed and was in danger of capture, thereby enabling him to rejoin and rally the disorganized troops. Sgt. Ferrier himself was captured and confined in Confederate prisons, from which he escaped and, after great hardship, rejoined the Union lines." (bio by: Don Morfe)
