263 Medals of Honor are Accredited to Massachusetts

  • Boston's LEONARD WOOD received the Medal of Honor for action during the Indian Campaigns, then went on to form what became Teddy Roosevelt's "Rough Riders", eventually becoming Army Chief of Staff in 1910 and unsuccessfully seeking the Republican Presidential nomination.

"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 Massachusetts we have divided the Recipients into three separate pages.
