Grave
Aged: 59.7 years
At battles like Cynthiana, Ky., Grenfell saved the day.

“’Old St. Lege,’ as the boys now called their British comrade, led a second mounted charge against the last enemy stronghold, the railroad depot. Eleven bullets pierced his clothing, his talismanic cap, and in some places his skin, but his attack ended the fighting, and he required no surgeon to patch his wounds. 'I cannot too highly compliment Colonel St. Leger Grenfell,’ Morgan’s second in command Basil Duke reported, 'for the execution of an order which did perhaps more than anything else to gain the battle. His example gave new courage to everyone who witnessed it.'”
