The Medal of Honor

by Roger Wachtel
First established during the Civil War, the Medal of Honor is given to those who show extreme bravery during military combat. Descriptions of several of the recipients are given along with a history of the award.
Series Information: Dramatic and defining moments in American history, from colonial times to the present day, come vividly to life in Cornerstones of Freedom, Second Series. A natural extension of the acclaimed original series, the second series returns its focus to the United States, with more of what middle-grade teachers and students are looking for to support history, social studies, and geography curricula.
