CDV of MOH Winning General Adelbert Ames of the 20th Maine Volunteers.  "Ames
graduated from the United States Military Academy on May 6, 1861, standing fifth in
his class of 45. On that same date he was commissioned a second lieutenant in the
2nd U.S. Artillery. Eight days later he was promoted to first lieutenant and was
assigned to the 5th U.S. Artillery.[5] During the First Battle of Bull Run that July,
Ames was badly wounded in the right thigh but refused to leave his guns.   He was
brevetted to the rank of major on July 21 for his actions during Bull Run. In 1893
Ames would also receive the Medal of Honor for his performance there.  . He then
fought in the Peninsula Campaign, and saw action at the Battle of Yorktown from
April 5 to May 4, the Battle of Gaines' Mill on June 27, and the Battle of Malvern Hill
that July. Ames was commended for his conduct at Malvern Hill by Col. Henry J. Hunt,
chief of the artillery of the Army of the Potomac, and he received a brevet promotion
to lieutenant colonel on July 1.  He returned to Maine and politicked to receive a
commission as a regimental commander of infantry and was assigned to command
the 20th Maine Volunteer Infantry Regiment on August 20, 1862.   The 20th Maine
fought in the Maryland Campaign, but saw little action at the Battle of Antietam on
September 17, while in a reserve capacity. During the Union defeat at the Battle of
Fredericksburg that winter, Ames led his regiment in one of the last charges on
December 13 against Marye's Heights. During the Chancellorsville Campaign in May
1863, Ames volunteered as an aide-de-camp to Maj. Gen. George G. Meade,
commander of the V Corps.  Probably as a result of this staff duty and his proximity
to the influential Meade,[citation needed] Ames was promoted to brigadier general in
the Union Army on May 20, 1863, two weeks following the Battle of Chancellorsville.   
Ames assumed brigade command in the XI Corps of the Army of the Potomac,
relinquishing his command of the 20th Maine to Lt. Col. Joshua L. Chamberlain, who
would soon lead the regiment to fame in the Battle of Gettysburg that July."

Rarely seen cdv of Brigadier General WHL Wallace killed at the Battle of Shiloh.  "At
the start of the Civil War, Wallace volunteered as a private with the 11th Illinois,
which was assembled in Springfield. He was then elected the unit's colonel.[citation
needed] He rose up the ranks and commanded a brigade of Brig. Gen. John A.
McClernand's division of Grant's Army of the Tennessee at the Battle of Fort
Donelson in 1862. During the battle much of McClernand's division had been driven
back with heavy losses and Wallace's coolness under fire was especially noted. Brig.
Gen. Lew Wallace described the colonel as looking like a "farmer coming from a
hard day's plowing". After this first time meeting upon the Fort Donelson battlefield,
the two quickly learned each possessed the same surname and had commanded
their respective states' 11th regiments, prompting Lew Wallace to muse the
coincidence must have caused "great profanity in the army post office".
For his service at Fort Donelson Colonel Wallace was appointed a brigadier general
of volunteers. During the expedition to Savannah, Tennessee Maj. Gen. Charles
Ferguson Smith injured his leg and was forced to turn over command of his division
to General Wallace.[citation needed] At the Battle of Shiloh, Wallace was a new
division commander, yet he managed to withstand six hours of assaults by the
Confederates, directly next to the famous Hornet's Nest, or Sunken Road. When his
division was finally surrounded, he ordered a withdrawal and many escaped, but he
was mortally wounded and only later found barely alive on the battlefield by his
troops. "  Anthony bm
