Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor recipient. Entered the service at Fort Snelling, Rice County, Minnesota and served as a Corporal in Company H, 3rd Minnesota Infantry. While on scout patrol May 26 to June 2, 1863 near Duck River in Tennessee, he came across two Confederate guerrilla officers. They were more heavily armed than he, but he was able to capture them and hold them until he could get back to his unit. His citation was issued on March 3, 1917. Originally buried in Pasco Cemetery, on February 16, 2000 his remains were reburied with full military honors at the state's only national cemetery. This event marked the first time a Civil War veteran or a Medal of Honor recipient has been interred there.
