"Medal of Honor Recipients at Bellefontaine Cemetery"

In the first three pictures of Medal of Honor winners in the Civil War, the men were awarded the medal in the same incident and miraculously were buried at the same cemetery. Sergeant Henry Hammel with Privates Fitz Guerin and Private Joseph Pesch were aboard the Steamer USS Cheeseman at Grand Gulf, Mississippi in Grant's Vicksburg Campaign where they manned the guns on board as the ship became unmanageable under heavy fire from the Confederate positions and were awarded the Medal of Honor for Bravery. Also in this presentation there is another page of Medal of Honor recipients at Bellefontaine Cemetery.

Sergeant Henry A. Hammel, Medal of Honor, U.S.A. (1840-1902)--a member of Company A of the 1st Missouri Light Artillery.
