New York Medal of Honor Heroes
From Korea (1871) to World War I

  • During the Spanish American war New York's Richmond P. Hobson's Action  resulted in the 8 volunteers he led receiving Medals of Honor.  As a Naval Officer Hobson himself was ineligible for the Medal,  but became a National Hero.  That same year a South Carolina couple named their son  RICHMOND HOBSON HILTON in his honor.  During World War I Richmond H. Hilton received the Medal of Honor himself.  When the Medal was later authorized for officers as well as enlisted personnel, by Congressional Action, Hobson was awarded the Medal of Honor (35 years after his heroic feat). 

"For Conspicuous Gallantry and Intrepidity in Action At the Risk of Life Above and Beyond the Call of Duty"
