Sergeant George Dore was one of 63 men who was awarded the Medal of Honor for heroism in the battle at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, July 1 - 3, 1863. On the last day of that battle Sergeant Dore's regiment was advancing across the field in the assault later called Hancock's countercharge. An enemy artillery round struck down the colors of the 126th New York Infantry, and Sergeant Dore courageously ignored fire from both sides to rush forward, seize the flag, and then carry them throughout the rest of the attack.
