House Flippers find Civil War Medal of Honor

A pair of house flippers in Orlando believe they found a historic military medal while cleaning out a house they purchased. They said they found what appears to be a U.S. Military Medal of Honor from the Civil War, inside a box. The couple said their research led them to a battle during the Civil War, during which a man by the same name listed on the medal, Mark Wood, attempted to block Confederate soldiers by damaging railways in the South. Their records show Wood was given one of the first-ever medals of honor during Abraham Lincoln's presidency. Read more.
