Today's Medal of Honor Moment for 29 February

There are no Medals awarded for actions on this day.    This doesn't leave us totally bereft - there is one recipient who was born on this day... given that it only happens every four years, it's not all that surprising, is it?

From the Civil War, a soldier we've not yet met, but will soon.
 

PETERS, HENRY C.

Rank and organization: Private, Company B, 47th Ohio Infantry.  Entered service at: Adrian, Mich. Born: 29 February 1840, Monroe County, Mich. Date of issue: 5 April 1917.
