1Title:  Michael Corcoran Papers     
 Creator:  Corcoran, Michael 
 Dates:  2001 
 Abstract:  Michael Corcoran (1848-1919) was born in County Cork, Ireland, and immigrated to the United States with his family as a young boy. A soldier in the 8th United States Cavalry in the Indian Wars, Corcoran served in 1869 in the Mojave Desert, then part of the Arizona territory. Corcoran was awarded the Medal of Honor for gallantry in an action that took place on August 25, 1869. After leaving the army, Corcoran lived in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, and later settled in Cleveland, Ohio, where he worked on the railroad. He married Johanna Culliton, and together they raised four children. All three of his grandsons served in the military. The collection consists of a 2001 Veterans Day Memorial Day Service, biographical information, newspaper clippings, and a photograph (photocopy).
