For a rare act of heroic devotion
in rescuing the body of
Colonel Peter A. Porter,
8th New York Cavalry,
From under the guns of the enemy,
Cold Harbor, June 3, 1864."
The reverse represents soldiers in the act of bearing the body of a fallen

Each medal was accompanied by the following letter :
"Century Rooms, June 3, 1865.
"To Private John Morris Duff, Eighth Regiment New York Artillery:
" 'The Century,' an association of the literary men and artists of New
York, admiring whatever is noble in character or action, has caused this
medal to be prepared and presented to you.
" Colonel Peter A. Porter, your late commander, our associate, was
respected by us for his manly qualities, loved for his kindness and
accomplishments, and lamented for his untimely but glorious death.
"Your bravery and devotion in bringing his body from under the
enemy's guns to an honorable grave, have won our admiration and
" We present this medal as a testimonial to you and your posterity, of
the honor in which courage in the discharge of duty is held by all men.
" George Bancroft, President.
" Augustus R. Macdonough, Secretary."
General Hancock, who was selected to present the medals, said :
" It is a source of infinite gratification to me that I have been selected
by ' The Century' to present you each with a golden medal, commemora-
tive of the heroism displayed by you in rescuing from the sanguinary
battle-field of Cold Harbor the body of your gallant and distinguished
commander. Col. P. A. Porter, of the 8th New York Heavy Artillery, who
had been killed while intrepidly leading his regiment to the charge against
the enemy's works. This noble action was voluntarily performed by you
under the close and deadly fire of the enemy, at the utmost peril of your
" I then had the honor to command the 2d Army Corps, to which your
gallant regiment was attached ; and I know full well the dangers attending
the valorous deed, in the performance of which you exhibited the noblest
qualities of the soldier. The records of battles scarcely present an instance
in which assaulting columns approached so close to the enemy as did ours
at Cold Harbor, without complete success ; and probably not one in which
the brave assailants held so tenaciously and defiantly the ground they had
gained ; nor one in which it was more hazardous to perform the chivalrous
act, in commemoration of which these chaste and beautiful medals have
been struck. They are appropriate rewards for your fearless valor and
devotion, and are worthy of 'The Century' and the occasion which called
them forth. They should be preserved and transmitted by each of you, as
a high and priceless honor.
" For your devotion to your Colonel, and for your heroic s^vices in
rescuing his body from under the guns of the enemy, accept the thanks of
his relatives and friends ; and accept these medals from the ' Century
Club' as testimonials of their high appreciation of Colonel Porter's charac-
ter, and of your bold achievement in the hazardous enterprise. Keep
them while you live, and transmit them to your children, to be preserved
as a memorial of those services."
