About John Henry White

The President of the United States of America, in the name of Congress, takes pleasure in presenting the Medal of Honor to Private John Henry White, United States Army, for extraordinary heroism on 23 August 1862, while serving with Company A, 90th Pennsylvania Infantry, in action at Rappahannock Station, Virginia. At the imminent risk of his life, Private White crawled to a nearby spring within the enemy's range and exposed to constant fire, filled a large number of canteens, and returned in safety to the relief of his comrades who were suffering from want of water.
