About Richard S. Stout

The President of the United States of America, in the name of Congress, takes pleasure in presenting the Medal of Honor to Landsman Richard Stout, United States Navy, for extraordinary heroism in action while serving on board the U.S.S. Isaac Smith, Stono River, South Carolina, 30 January 1863. While reconnoitering on the Stono River on this date the U.S.S. Isaac Smith became trapped in a rebel ambush. Fired on from two sides, she fought her guns until disabled. Suffering heavy casualties and at the mercy of the enemy who was delivering a raking fire from every side, she struck her colors out of regard for the wounded aboard, and all aboard were taken prisoners. Carrying out his duties bravely through this action, Landsman Stout was severely wounded and lost his right arm while returning the rebel fire.
