KILLED NOV 20, 1863 IN ACTION AT LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN GA

-ILSOS

Early on the morning of the 24th the men were under arms and facing the Lookout. Soon the column commenced moving, and now the object of the move became apparent--which was no less than the storming of Lookout Mountain.
...James Medford, of Company G, was killed while in the act of shooting at the enemy.
The morning of the 25th revealed to all in the valley below the glorious flag of the Union floating over the point of Lookout.
