Mary Walker
Mary Walker crossed the enemy's line to save her own people from dying and was captured but was later released. In my opinion I think that Mary Walker is very brave, courageous, she crossed the enemies line to go and help her own people and during the process she was taken as a prisoner but was later released in an exchange.
William Carney
William Carney showed bravery by rescuing the flag even though it wasn't his job. He also was severely wounded twice while falling back. His valor and courage made him a representitive of those who died.
