TAPS

Fading light dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky,
    Gleaming bright.
From afar drawing nigh,    
    Falls the night.


Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, From the hills,
    From the sky.
All is well, safel
y rest,
    God is nigh.


Then good night, Peaceful night,
Till the light of the dawn
    Shineth bright,
God is near, do not fear,
  Friend, good night.

FIRST AWARD
During the winter campaign of 1876 (for the period October 21, 1876 to January 8, 1877), General Nelson Miles led valiant American soldiers in a series of engagements against the Sioux Indians primarily in and around the Montana Territory. Facing not only a hostile enemy, these soldiers endured harsh winter weather and meager living conditions to bring security to settlers throughout the region. Private Henry Hogan was one of 31 soldiers to receive the Medal of Honor for "gallantry in actions" during this period.

SECOND AWARD
During the summer and early fall of 1877 the U.S. Cavalry was in pursuit of Chief Joseph and the Nez Perce Indian tribe as they attempted to cross through Montana and reach Canada. After numerous battles, including the battle of the Little Big Hole in early August, the Cavalry found it difficult to follow and locate Chief Joseph and his traveling tribe. After a forced march of several days, the Indian camp was located near Bear Paw Mountain, where the final battle that lead to the surrender of the Nez Perce nation occurred on September 30. After four of the five officers of the Seventh Cavalry were wounded in the first charge, Lieutenant Henry Romeyn of the 5th Infantry led the charge, mounted on a captured Indian horse. When Lieutenant Romeyn was seriously wounded, Private Henry Hogan braved the withering fire to carry the wounded officer from the field of battle. Both men received Medals of Honor in the Bear Paw Mountain battle, making Private Hogan's action one of the few instances in history where the Medal of Honor was awarded for saving the life of a Medal of Honor recipient. Seven other men earned Medals of Honor in the Bear Paw Mountain battle.
