At Lucas County this wonderful plaque was erected on the 2nd floor of the courthouse with a dignified ceremony at the unveiling.
Most recently it has been discovered that there are two MOH names missing and a third may have not had any connections to the county. Thus the county will be making a new plaque and will probably have another ceremony when it is to be unveiled.
Half way down the plaque you can see that there is one fellow who is listed as earning a Medal of Honor during the period of native unrest. His apparently was the first in a very long war with the natives.
There are plaques and monuments and markers like these all across the United States, and many of these also have the names of Canadians enscribed on them.
In New Jersey a bridge may be renamed after yet another Canadian Medal of Honor recipient... James McIntosh, a medal recipient for bravery from actions on the USS Richmond at Mobile Bay. And he too was a Montreal born lad. The bridge is currently called the Otto Wittpen bridge that spans the Hackensack River and connects Kearny to Jersey City. This is a very old lift bridge that will be replaced by another that will be three times as high as the older one and therefore will result in less interuption of traffic when the bigger boats need to tavel along the river. The new bridge is not scheduled to formally open for some time and negotiations with all the parties concerned need to be finallized before the name will be selected.
Mcintosh lived at Kearny for years and is buried there.
Stay tuned for further developements,
