Buffalo Soldier Private Augustus Walley Exhibition
Now that the Maryland Museum is aware of Walley’s military record, the family can only hope this will draw the much needed attention to get the second Medal of Honor for 1st Sgt. Augustus Walley.
In attendance at Tuesday’s ceremony was the family Troopers Betty Stokes, Talaya Johnson, Lois Stokes, Lisa Stokes Thorn, and Gregory Thorn. All are members of the Baltimore Chapter. In addition to the attendance were members of the Baltimore Chapter.
