Truly One of the Mighty Midgettes

Record #:
Rasmus S. Midgett, born in 1851, was awarded a gold medal of honor for lifesaving in 1899 when he single-handedly rescued 10 men from the wreck of the PRISCILLA. While on patrol from Gull Shoal Life Saving Station, Midgett pulled each man off the ship one by one, and brought them to the beach until all were rescued.
