Lewis Warrington

District Of Columbia, USA
Death: Jan. 5, 1879
San Antonio
Bexar County
Texas, USA

Indian Wars Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. During the Indian Campaigns, he served as a 1st Lieutenant in the 4th US Cavalry. On December 8, 1874, Lieutenant Warrington led ten troopers in pursuit of a group of hostile Indians in the Muchague Valley, Texas. As the troopers strung out across the distance, Warrington captured one warrior, turned him over to a trooper and continued in the pursuit. The Indians dismounted, took up positions and fired on the soldiers. In the battle that followed, Lieutenant Warrington used his rifle as a club in hand-to-hand combat after his ammunition was expended until the remaining Indians surrended. For gallantry in a combat, he was awarded the Medal of Honor in April 1875. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
