Drink a toast with me for Lt. Alonzo Cushing, hero at Gwttysburg. He was finally award the Medal of Honor. Even Wikipedia has an entry for him. This guy suffered some horrendous wounds before finally getting the bullet that killed him. I was surprised to read that Fuger, his first sargeant, got the MoH for holding him and repeating his orders to the men. Anyhow its better late than never.
