In addition to the Roll of Honor established after the close of the Civil War, there was a Confederate Metal of Honor which was bestowed on an individual by a vote of the entire company for heroic action in battle. This honor was not widely given by the vote of unit which was engaged in a particular battle incident because the men felt that no one individual should be awarded the Medal of Honor because the entire company performed heroic action in the face of the enemy.
I have a copy of an endorsement by a certain general (my records show his name) that refers to a numerical number of a Confederate General Order that granted this battlefield honor to one of my relatives which was one of the Immortal 600. I have not be able to find the actual General Order authorizing his medal;however his battlefield Medal of Honor was granted by his men for bravery that occurred before his capture.
There was no Confederate Medal of Honor that was actually received by a Confederate because of the lack of funds, no medals were struck.
