The descendants of U.S. Army Medal of Honor recipient, Captain Edmond BUTLER are wishing to ascertain the location of this missing medal. Edmond BUTLER was awarded the Medal of Honor as a result of his participation in the battle of Wolf Mountain, Montana on 8 January 1877. He served with the 5th Infantry during this iconic battle. The Battle of Wolf Mountain, also known the Battle of the Wolf Mountains, Miles's Battle on the Tongue River and the Battle of the Butte; occurred January 8, 1877, in the Montana Territory between the United States Army and a force of Lakota Sioux and Northern Cheyenne during the Great Sioux War of 1876. The Northern Cheyenne called it the Battle of Belly Butte. It was fought about four miles southwest of modern-day Birney, along the Tongue River. Mary Casey, the family historian states "My Great Grandfather, Edmond Butler, from County Tipperary, Ireland, came to America and fought in our Civil War. He then fought in the Indian Wars and earned the Medal of Honor after the Battle of Wolf Mountain, Montana on January 8, 1877. He was in the Army, 5th Infantry. The Medal disappeared years ago and I have heard it is in a private collection". Mary and her family fully appreciate that sometimes, collectors do not wish to part with their collection. They are also very grateful that these collectors treasure these medals and look after them, as if they are their own. They would be extremely grateful, just to know where the medal is? Mary went on to say, "Of course, our family would dearly love to have this medal returned to us, as our family has a very strong military tradition, we are certainly a military family. Captain Edmond Butler's sons, grandsons, great grandsons, great great grandsons and great,great, great grandsons have fought for this country over many years and in many conflicts. The latest being in Vietnam, South Korea, Iraq and Afghanistan. The missing Medal of Honor means a lot to our family and with the military history I have included, I am sure that whoever has been caring for this medal will appreciate that we are very genuine. If you are the person who has Edmond's medal, we would be extremely grateful even just to view the medal. If you would consider selling it back to us, that would be even better; but we fully understand your position and we respect your love for the Medal of Honor. We hope to hear from you in the near future.
