About Edward Eugene Lyon

The President of the United States of America, in the name of Congress, takes pleasure in presenting the Medal of Honor to Private Edward Eugene Lyon, United States Army, for most distinguished gallantry on 13 May 1899, while serving with Company B, 2d Oregon Volunteer Infantry, in action at San Miguel de Mayumo, Luzon, Philippine Islands. With 11 other scouts, without waiting for the supporting battalion to aid them or to get into position to do so, Private Lyon charged over a distance of about 150 yards and completely routed about 300 of the enemy, who were in line and in a position that could only be carried by a frontal attack.
