On July 16, 1902, Colorado National Guardsman Lt. Col. William R. Grove was issued a Medal of Honor for extreme bravery in the face of danger during the Spanish American War.

Grove charged an enemy position in the aid of his superior officer, by himself, and caused everyone not yet killed to surrender.
