Civil War Medal of Honor recipient for bravery at the battle of Stone's River, Tennessee

(1836-1909) Frederick Phisterer was a soldier in the U.S. Army who fought in the Civil War, and received the country's highest award for bravery during combat, the Medal of Honor. His medal was awarded to him for his heroic actions at the Battle of Stones River, at Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The citation on his medal reads, "The President of the United States of America, in the name of Congress, takes pleasure in presenting the Medal of Honor to First Lieutenant (Infantry) Frederick Phisterer, United States Army, for extraordinary heroism on 31 December 1862, while serving with 18th U.S. Infantry, in action at Stone River, Tennessee. First Lieutenant Phisterer voluntarily conveyed, under a heavy fire, information to the commander of a battalion of regular troops by which the battalion was saved from capture or annihilation."

Phisterer was born in Stuttgart, Germany, and joined the United States Army from Medina County, Ohio, in December 1855, and served in the 3rd U.S. Artillery Regiment for 5 years. He re-enlisted with the 18th U.S. Infantry Regiment in July 1861, and was commissioned as an officer the following October. He eventually rose to the rank of Captain, and was honorably discharged in August 1870.

Phisterer was a longtime officer of the New York Militia, and he played a prominent role in the reorganization of the militia as part of the National Guard. He attained the rank of Colonel, and was later promoted to Brevet Brigadier General for his services in organizing and training soldiers to fight in the Spanish–American War. He served as Acting Adjutant General in 1901 and 1902, and was promoted to Brevet Major General at his retirement as recognition for his many years of successful service in the U.S. Army.

He died in Albany, New York, and was buried at Green Lawn Cemetery, Columbus, Ohio.
