I am producing a documentary for the Congressional Medal of Honor Society on the the History of the Medal. This is about it's origins in the Civil War and continuation into the Indian Wars. I am seeking images of scouts, cavalry and infantry soldiers wearing the medal. I'm also looking for paperwork - ephemera - i.e. citations, letters or recommendation, etc. One image in particular I've seen and can't find again is of the 6th and 8th Cavalry mustered in 1869 in Arizona being awarded medals. This was the largest presentations in the 19th Century. I will credit anyone who can assist in the production.

I need the images scanned large and preferably in tif format, but can accept jpgs. If any of you can assist, please contact me at [email protected]

Thank you all for any assistance you can provide.

Howdy!

Just heading out the door, but...

You probably have considered Googling names from the MOH recipient lists as often times there exists their formal images wearing their medals.
Oh say, such as Thomas Custer with his two.

I have...I've seen some up here and wanted to find the sources for those. Amos Chapman being one. We're having a hard time getting decent images of them and the campaign soldiers.
