Francis E. Warren. Received the CMoH on September 30, 1893 for his actions at Port Hudson, La on May 27, 1863. The citation reads: "Volunteered in response to a call, and took part in the movement that was made upon the enemy's works under a heavy fire therefrom in advance of the general assault." His entire platoon was destroyed by Confederate bombardment and Warren, taking a serious scalp wound, disabled the artillery. At the time, he was a Corporal in Company C, 49th Massachusetts Infantry.

Warren became the first governor of the State of Wyoming October 11, 1890.
