Indian Wars Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He began his military career during the Civil War, enlisting on June 25, 1862 in the Union Army. Mustered in as a Private in Company G, 1st United States Sharpshooters ("Berdan's Sharpshooters), he fought at the August 1862 Battle of Second Bull Run, where he was wounded. Discharged due to those wounds in October 1862, two months later he re-joined the Union war effort, enlisting as a Private in the 3rd Wisconsin Volunteer Heavy Artillery in December 1862. After over a year with the Heavy Artillery, he was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant, and transferred to the 36th Wiscosin Volunteer Infantry on February 11, 1865. Captured by Confederate forces on August 25, 1864 at the Battle of Ream's Station Virginia, he served through the end of the war, and accepted an offer to remain in the post-War army. On September 18, 1865 he was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in Company B, 36th United States Colored Troops, and served with the regiment in occupation duty until he was mustered out on October 26, 1866. He enlisted in the United States Regular Army in 1867, and was serving as a 1st Lieutenant in the 41st United States Regular Infantry when he performed his acts of bravery at Brazos River, Texas on October 28, 1869 that was feted with the CMOH. His citation reads "Attacked with 2 men a force of 11 Indians, drove them from the hills, and reconnoitered the country beyond". Brevetted Captain, US Army, he retired from the Army on June 28, 1878, and his Medal was issued to him on January 18, 1894. His reputation as a crack sharpshooter, an ability that started his military career during the Civil War, garnered him many awards and helped him to win a number of prominent shooting competitions after his Army retirement. In his later days he served as a Brigade Rifle Inspector for the Connecticut National Guard, and was employed by the Winchester Arms Company. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
