About Thomas Hall Forsyth

The President of the United States of America, in the name of Congress, takes pleasure in presenting the Medal of Honor to First Sergeant Thomas Hall Forsyth, United States Army, for extraordinary heroism on 25 November 1876, while serving with Company M, 4th U.S. Cavalry, in action at Powder River, Wyoming. Though dangerously wounded, First Sergeant Forsyth maintained his ground with a small party against a largely superior force after his commanding officer had been shot down during a sudden attack and rescued that officer and a comrade from the enemy.
