Re: Medals of Honor @ Antietam
- Hi Steve, folks
I think the chart cited below misses one - I believe there were 21 not
20. The missing man is Pvt. John Johnson, Company D, 2d Wisconsin
Infantry - perhaps he's missed or not included because his citation
points to his actions at both Antietam and Fredericksburg.
My list of MoH recipents at/for Antietam is here:
John Johnson's citation here: http://aotw.org/moh.php?citation_id=114
More background on the medal and Antietam here:
BTW, the ANB website pages here: http://www.nps.gov/anti/MOH2.htm
and here: http://www.nps.gov/anti/MOH.htm - seem to have been copied
from www.medalofhonor.com - I hope that's legit :)
