George Jordan (Medal of Honor)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

George Jordan (1847 – October 24, 1904) was a Buffalo Soldier in the United States Army and a recipient of America's highest military decoration—the Medal of Honor—for his actions in the Indian Wars of the western United States.

Biography

Jordan joined the Army from Nashville, Tennessee after the Civil War, initially joining the 38th Infantry.[1] By 1880 was serving as a Sergeant in Company K of the 9th Cavalry Regiment in New Mexico. On May 7, 1890, he was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions at the Battle of Tularosa on May 14, 1880 and at Carrizo Canyon on August 12, 1881. He was also awarded the Certificate of Merit for his actions at the Carrizo Canyon engagement, which brought with it an additional $2 a month in extra pay.[1]

In 1887, Jordan was commended by the commander at Fort Robinson for capturing an escaped prisoner.[1] Jordan reached the rank of First Sergeant before leaving the Army in 1897.[2] After retirement, he lived in a community with fellow Buffalo soldiers in Crawford, Nebraska.[1] He died in 1904 and was buried in Fort McPherson National Cemetery, Maxwell, Nebraska.
