ABSTRACT
The author expresses discontent over the long overdue honors given to Englishman Phillip Baybutt who was caught up in the U.S. Civil War from 1861 to 1865. According to the author, when Baybutt was buried back home in his native England in the year 1909, no one bothered to inscribe his headstone with a fairly startling fact. In the U.S. Civil War half a century before, he had earned the American Medal of Honor.
