Saints at War: Inspiring Stories of Courage and Valor
Since its establishment, the United States flag has stood as a beacon of hope across the nation, symbolizing our freedom and unification. Today, we share the story of an American hero, Sergeant William Carney, who fought bravely and risked his life to secure the United States flag in battle. As a young man, William Carney intended to pursue ecclesiastical training and become a minister, but instead he enlisted in the 54 th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry. Due to his education and strong leadership potential, William Carney swiftly rose to the rank of sergeant.
In the summer of , two years after the start of the Civil War, the 54 th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry saw its first combat. During the battle, the flag bearer was fatally wounded, and, as he fell, Sergeant Carney, who had multiple wounds to his legs, chest and arm, arrived to take on the flag and return it to the parapet, all while preventing the colors from touching the ground.
Despite his injuries and enemy gunfire, Sergeant Carney kept the flag aloft until reinforcements arrived. Following his discharge from the infantry, Carney returned to Massachusetts to serve as a postal letter carrier for 32 years, and he was a founding vice president of New Bedford Branch 18 of the National Association of Letter Carriers.
Sergeant Carney often shared his experience at Fort Wagner and later became the namesake for a New Bedford, Massachusetts elementary school.
