FRY, ISAAC N.
Rank and Organization: Orderly Sergeant, U.S. Marine Corps. Accredited To:
Pennsylvania. G.O. No.: 59, 22 June 1865.
On board the U.S.S. Ticonderoga during attacks on Fort Fisher, 13 to 15 January 1865.
As orderly sergeant of marine guard, and captain of a gun, Orderly Sgt. Fry performed his
duties with skill and courage as the Ticonderoga maintained a well-placed fire upon the
batteries to the left of the palisades during the initial phases of the 3-day battle, and
thereafter, as she considerably lessened the firing power of guns on the mount which had
been turned upon our assaulting columns. During this action the flag was planted on one of
the strongest fortifications possessed by the rebels.
