Christopher Nugent
Birth: 1838
Death: May 6, 1898

Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served as a Orderly Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. His citation reads "Served on board the USS Fort Henry, Crystal River, Fla., 15 June 1863. Reconnoitering on the Crystal River on this date and in charge of a boat from the Fort Henry, Orderly Sgt. Nugent ordered an assault upon a rebel breastwork fortification. In this assault, the orderly sergeant and his comrades drove a guard of 11 rebels into the swamp, capturing their arms and destroying their camp equipage while gallantly witholding fire to prevent harm to a woman among the fugitives. On 30 July 1863, he further proved his courage by capturing a boat off Depot Key, Fla., containing two men and a woman with their baggage." (bio by: Don Morfe)
