About Frank M. Whitman

The President of the United States of America, in the name of Congress, takes pleasure in presenting the Medal of Honor to Private Frank M. Whitman, United States Army, for extraordinary heroism on 17 September 1862, while serving with Company G, 35th Massachusetts Infantry, in action at Antietam, Maryland. Private Whitman was among the last to leave the field at Antietam and was instrumental in saving the lives of several of his comrades at the imminent risk of his own. At Spotsylvania, Virginia, on 18 May, 1864, he was foremost in line in the assault, where he lost a leg.
