Looking For Philadelphia Medal of Honor Graves

From the November 11, 2011, Philadelphia Inquirer. //// There are 104 Medal of Honor winners from the Civil War who had ties to Philadelphia. Only the graves of 94 have been found. //// Andy Barry is one of the people looking for graves without markers. //// Waskie and Kelly are looking for the grave of Navy Seaman George Moore, who nearly lost his life rescuing crewmen from the sinking Monitor during a gale off Cape Hatteras December 30, 1862. //// "During another rescue attempt, with giant waves crashing around them, Moore and others managed to survive 50 miles off the coast, when a schooner picked them up." //// Hope They Found Them. --Old B-Runner
