John McDermott - Captain   
Captain John McDermott of the 20th Regiment of Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry. Born in Carrick, Ireland, John immigrated to Iowa County, Wisconsin. During the summer of 1862, he recruited a company that became part of the 20th Wisconsin.

At the battle of Prairie Grove , Arkansas on December 7, 1862, Captain John McDermott led his company in an attack on a Confederate artillery position. Despite heavy casualties sustained from point blank artillery fire, McDermott and his men captured the position and advanced another 50 yards where they were attacked by a vastly superior Confederate brigade. In the ensuing retreat, Captain McDermott retrieved the American flag from the fallen color guard. Later that day, he was found dead on the battlefield still clutching the Stars and Stripes.

He is buried at:
Fayetteville National Cemetery
700 Government Avenue
Fayetteville, AR 72701
