🇺🇸 100 years ago today, Alvin York neutralized an enemy machine gun nest and captured 132 German soldiers near Chatel Chéhéry, France . For these actions, he was awarded the Medal of Honor. His citation reads:
“After his platoon suffered heavy casualties and 3 other noncommissioned officers had become casualties, Cpl. York assumed command. Fearlessly leading 7 men, he charged with great daring a machine gun nest which was pouring deadly and incessant fire upon his platoon. In this heroic feat the machine gun nest was taken, together with 4 officers and 128 men and several guns.” #usa #america #onthisday #wwi #ww1 #usarmy #army

🇺🇸 Union POW’s photographed by Andrew Jackson Riddle on August 16, 1864 at the Confederate prison named ‘Camp Sumter’ near Andersonville, Georgia. More prisoners died during that terrible August of 1864 when the prisons ranks swelled to over 33,000 men. Very few rations and a low supply of fresh water combined with rampant disease led to that August being the deadliest month in the prisons history. In total over the camps life nearly 13,000 Union men would perish there. [Library of Congress] #history #usa #america #civilwar
