America's Heroes: Medal of Honor Recipients from the Civil War to Afghanistan pays tribute to Americans who have demonstrated uncommon valor in the face of great danger. The Medal of Honor recipients featured in this book all acted heroically to earn this highly coveted award, many of them by riskingÑor sacrificingÑtheir lives to save the lives of others. The stories of these individualsÑchosen to reflect the wide diversity of ethnic and cultural backgrounds, branches of service, and conflicts of the recipientsÑwill broaden readers' understanding and appreciation of the Medal of Honor and the distinguished Americans who have received it.||In addition to the gripping stories of these heroic Americans, this unique encyclopedia includes an introduction that chronicles the evolution in the award's significance. The Medal of Honor has changed greatly over the last 150 years, not only in the design of the physical decoration itself, but also in terms of the qualifying criteria for the award's recipients.
