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 onDecember 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.”   Anthony/Brady bm.
