Henry H. Bingham, Awarded the Medal of Honor for gallantry in the battle of the Wilderness, Va.

Wounded three times during the war!

(1841-1912) Born in Philadelphia, Pa., he graduated from Jefferson College in 1862. He enlisted on Aug. 22, 1862, and was commissioned 1st Lieutenant, in the 140th Pennsylvania Infantry, and was soon promoted to Captain, on Sept. 9, 1862. During the battle of Gettysburg, in July 1863, he was serving as Judge Advocate on the staff of General Winfield S. Hancock, when he was wounded on July 2nd. The next day he witnessed Pickett's Charge, from a position near the "Angle" where the Confederates reached what is now called the "High Water Mark." He received the personal effects from Confederate General Lewis A. Armistead, whoo lie mortally wounded, and carried the sad news to General Hancock, Armistead's dear friend from before the war. Bingham was a Mason, as was Armistead, and the story of how he provided assistance to his dying fellow Mason, was used in Masonic literature. Today, near the Gettysburg National Cemetery, is a monument which is titled, "Friend to Friend," which depicts Captain Henry H. Bingham, assisting General Lewis A. Armistead. During the battle of the Wilderness, on May 6, 1864, Bingham rallied and led into action a portion of the troops who had given way under fierce Confederate assaults, and was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his conspicuous bravery. On May 12, 1864, at the battle of Spotsylvania, Va., he was wounded for the second time during the war, and he was wounded for the third time on April 7, 1865, at Farmville, Va. He was promoted to Brevet Brigadier General, on April 9, 1865. Bingham was appointed postmaster of Philadelphia, by President Andrew Johnson, in March 1867, and served until December 1872. He was a delegate to the Republican National Conventions of 1872 though 1900, and was elected United States Congressman in 1878, and served until his death. In Congress, he served as Chairman of the Committee on the Post Office and Post Roads, and on the Committee on Expenditures in the Post Office Department.
