2   MOH Recipients Currently Live In Ohio

253 Medals of Honor are Accredited to Ohio

  • 154 of Ohio's 253 Medals of Honor were awarded for heroism during the Civil War.

  • The first Medal of Honor ever PRESENTED was awarded by Secretary of War Edwin Stanton on March 25, 1863 to 19 year old Ohio Army Private JACOB PARROTT.  Parrott was a member of Andrew's Raiders, immortalized in the movie "The Great Locomotive Chase".  Eventually Parrott's 18 fellow soldiers from that mission received Medals of Honor, 4 of them posthumously, ALL 19 of these heroes from OHIO.  They are noted below with a (A) for "Andrew's Raiders".  As a civilian, James Andrews himself was not eligible for the Medal of Honor. 

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

 

Due the large number of Medals of Honor accredited to Ohio we have divided the Recipients into four separate pages.
