About William C. Bryan

The President of the United States of America, in the name of Congress, takes pleasure in presenting the Medal of Honor to Hospital Steward William C. Bryan, United States Army, for extraordinary heroism on 17 March 1876, while serving with Medical Company, in action at Powder River, Montana. Hospital Steward Bryan accompanied a detachment of cavalry in a charge on a village of hostile Indians and fought through the engagements, having his horse killed under him. He continued to fight on foot, and under severe fire and without assistance conveyed two wounded comrades to places of safety, saving them from capture.
