Posted In: Video Library | March 23, 2020
Medal of Honor: The History, follows the medal’s journey from the time its design was first conceived in 1861,the difficulties in obtaining congressional approval during the Civil War to the exalted place it now holds as our nation’s highest military award for extraordinary acts of wartime valor. The film, narrated by Gary Sinise and shot on location across the United States features never-before-seen documents, photographs and interviews with congressional and armed-forces historians illustrating the craftsmanship that goes into creating the medal. It was produced by the Medal of Honor Convention – Knoxville 2014 as a legacy project to be donated to the Congressional Medal of Honor Society.
