He maintained well placed fire upon the batteries to the left of the palisades during the initial phases of the 3-day battle. Due to his actions the firing power of guns on the mount which had been turned upon Federal assaulting columns was considerably lessened. During this action the Union flag was planted on one of the strongest fortifications possessed by Confederate rebels". His Medal was awarded to him on June 22, 1865. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
