King George's War - 1744-1748

The War of the Austrian Succession having broken out between England and Spain, the General Assembly of Rhode Island met in February, 1639-40# and made provision for putting the Colony in a state of defense. Rhode Island also sent two companies of volunteers under under Capt. Hopkins in the unsuccessful expedition against Cartagena in 1740.

France entered the War in 1744 and the defenses of the Colony were on that account still further strengthened. A force of 150 men raised in 1745 for Shirley's expedition against Louisbourg, but the Rhode Island contingent did not arrive until after that fortress had surrendered.* In the following year Rhode Island sent three more companies to Nova Scotia under Captains Sayer, Rice and Cole.

By far the greater part of Rhode Island's effort in this conflict consisted in Privateering. A large number of these vessels were sent out each year and they inflicted great damage on the enemy's commerce. The Colony sloop of War Tartar was built during this war and was of much use as a scouting vessel and convoy guard.

This war, known in the Colonies as King George's War, came to an end in 1748 with the peace of Aix-la-Chapelle.

From 1744 to 1748. Military operations in North America that formed part of the War of the Austrian Succession (1740-1748). It was the third of the four French and Indian Wars. It took place primarily in the British provinces of New York, Massachusetts Bay, New Hampshire, and Nova Scotia. Its most significant action was an expedition organized by Massachusetts Governor William Shirley that besieged and ultimately captured the French fortress of Louisbourg, on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, in 1745.

The French and Indian War - From 1754 to 1763. The French and Indian War is the common American name for the war between Great Britain and France in North America. In 1756, the war erupted into the world-wide conflict known as the Seven Year War and thus came to be regarded as the North American theater of that war. In Canada, it is usually just referred to as the Seven Year War, although French Canadians often call it La guerre de la Conquete ("The War of Conquest"). In Europe, there is no specific name for the North American part of the war. The name refers to the two main enemies of the British colonists: the royal French forces and the various Native American forces allied with them, although Great Britain also had Native allies.

Result: British Victory Treaty of Paris.

Territorial Changes: France cedes Canada to Great Britain, retaining Saint Pierre et Miquelon, and transfers Louisiana to Spain; Spain cedes Florida to Great Britain

Medal of Honor
Medal of Honor The first formal system for rewarding acts of individual gallantry by the nation's fighting men was established by General George Washington on August 7, 1782. Designed to recognize "any singularly meritorious action," the award consisted of a purple cloth heart. Records show that only three persons received the award: Sergeant Elijah Churchill, Sergeant William Brown, and Sergeant Daniel Bissel, Jr.

The Badge of Military Merit, as it was called, fell into oblivion until 1932, when General Douglas MacArthur, then Army Chief of Staff, pressed for its revival. Officially reinstituted on February 22, 1932, the now familiar Purple Heart was at first an Army award, given to those who had been wounded in World War I or who possessed a Meritorious Service Citation Certificate. In 1943, the order was amended to include personnel of the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. Coverage was eventually extended to include all services and "any civilian national" wounded while serving with the Armed Forces.

Although the Badge of Military Merit fell into disuse after the Revolutionary War, the idea of a decoration for individual gallantry remained through the early 1800s. In 1847, after the outbreak of the Mexican-American War, a "certificate of merit" was established for any soldier who distinguished himself in action. No medal went with the honor. After the Mexican-American War, the award was discontinued, which meant there was no military award with which to recognize the nation's fighting men.

Early in the Civil War, a medal for individual valor was proposed to General-in-Chief of the Army Winfield Scott. But Scott felt medals smacked of European affectation and killed the idea.

The medal found support in the Navy, however, where it was felt recognition of courage in strife was needed. Public Resolution 82, containing a provision for a Navy medal of valor, was signed into law by President Abraham Lincoln on December 21, 1861. The medal was "to be bestowed upon such petty officers, seamen, landsmen, and Marines as shall most distinguish themselves by their gallantry and other seamanlike qualities during the present war."

Shortly after this, a resolution similar in wording was introduced on behalf of the Army. Signed into law July 12, 1862, the measure provided for awarding a medal of honor "to such noncommissioned officers and privates as shall most distinguish themselves by their gallantry in action, and other soldier-like qualities, during the present insurrection."

Although it was created for the Civil War, Congress made the Medal of Honor a permanent decoration in 1863.

The President of the United States, in the name of Congress, has awarded more than 3,400 Medals of Honor to our nation's bravest Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen since the decoration's creation in 1861.

There has been at least 1 Howard in each of the major wars and battles.

The list is arranged by date, alphabetically by US State.
