I recall that about 20 Medals of Honour were awarded to members of 7th Cavalry who took part in the "Battle of Wounded Knee" in 1890. When were the awards made? > "> Late awards to senior serving officers such as Miles and > Howard who had already been rewarded for their performance > had to have seemed like an abuse of the system at the time. > As cited, the process was revised in 1897 and then later in > 1915 when the US armed forces began adopting a more modern > system of awards which placed the MOH as the top (rather than > the sole) decoration."
