Birth: 1836
Death: Nov. 5, 1896

Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. Served in the Union Navy as a Landsman on board the "USS Brooklyn".

His citation reads “Stationed in the immediate vicinity of the shell whips which were twice cleared of men by bursting shells, Brown remained steadfast at his post and performed his duties in the powder division throughout the furious action which resulted in the surrender of the prize rebel ram Tennessee and in the damaging and destruction of batteries at Fort Morgan”.
