Medal of Honor Exhibit opens at AHS Museum

Circa 1870 Medal given to Private Chicquito Indain Scout
Between 1862 and 1889, some 157 US Army officers and enlisted men serving in today's Arizona, received the nation's highest military decoration for valor. Since that time, these Medal of Honor recipients, including eleven Apache scouts, would be joined by four of Arizona's other native sons. The story of bravery under fire now will be told in this exciting new exhibit.
