[337]

An honor man of the regulars First-Sergeant Conrad Schmidt of the Second United States Cavalry--a fine type of the “regular” trooper. He was decorated for galloping to the assistance of his captain, whose horse had been killed in a charge, mounting the officer behind him under fire and riding off to safety, although his own horse had been wounded in five places. This was at the Opequon, September 19, 1864.
