Mr. Christopher Morton, Assistant Curator for the New York State Military History Museum and Veteran's Research Center, places the Medal of Honor on display in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. on June 13. The Civil War Medal was earned by Private Richard Beddows who served with an artillery battery of New York Volunteers in 1864. His bravery under fire to recover his unit colors, also on display at the museum, was recognized by the Army and the nation in 1896. The medal is on loan from Michael Resnick, a Long Island resident and descendent of Pvt. Beddows.
