Encyclopedia > Thomas Lyons

Thomas Lyons (183829 August 1904) was a seaman in the United States Navy. On 24 April 1862 he was on board USS Pensacola during the attack on Fort Jackson and Fort Saint Philip. Lashed outside of that vessel, on the port-sheet chain, with the lead in hand to lead the ship past the forts, Lyons never flinched, although under a heavy fire from the forts and Confederate gunboats. His actions earned the Medal of Honor.
