Company Unknown
Jacob R. Tucker
- Corporal
My father always spoke of his mother's cousin, Jacob Tucker, who would take him on his lap and tell him stories of the battle in the cornfield before Antietam and do the rebel yell for him. My father never knew that his cousin Jacob was awarded a Medal of Honor for heroism at the Battle of Petersburg.
