Sid...please correct me if I am wrong....was the MOH still issued basically as a Purple Heart during this time or was that further back?

Default MOH was not issued as a purple heart

However at its inception the submission rules were not as stringent as they currently are. The citations prior to WW I are sketchy in many cases. Basically you have to know the war and research the battle to get some idea of what happened. makes for some of the best history reading I have done in years.
