Thomas E. Corcoran
Birth: 1838
County Dublin, Ireland
Death: Mar. 12, 1904
New York County (Manhattan)
New York, USA

Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served as a Landsman in the Union Navy. His citation reads "Served on board the USS Cincinnati during the attack on the Vicksburg batteries and at the time of her sinking, 27 May 1863. Engaging the enemy in a fierce battle, the Cincinnati, amidst an incessant fire of shot and shell, continued to fire her guns to the last, though so penetrated by shellfire that her fate was sealed. Serving bravely during this action, Corcoran was conspicuously cool under the fire of the enemy, never ceasing to fight until this proud ship went down, "her colors nailed to the mast"." (bio by: Don Morfe)
