Citation for Congressional Medal of Honor
by Seymour "Sy" Brody
His service record, which is shown here, records that Urbansky's original medal was lost and that a new one was issued in 1879. The calligraphed certificate shown here states that Urbansky entered the army as a private in the 58th Ohio Volunteer Infantry on October 28, 1861, was detailed to the Corps Commissary Department on September 10, 1863, and was mustered out on January 14, 1865.
Exceptional gallantry and heroism in many actions.
