(Photo:At the Battle of Missionary Ridge on November 25, 1863, during the Chattanooga Campaign, the 18-year-old MacArthur inspired his regiment by seizing and planting the regimental flag on the crest of Missionary Ridge 35°1′7.15″N 85°15′51.02″W at a particularly critical moment, shouting "On Wisconsin." For these actions, he was awarded the Medal of Honor.

Narrated by Gary Sinise, this documentary showcases the medal itself and how it rose from a decoration no one wanted, to become the nation's highest honor. Featuring interviews with service branch historians and the U.S. Senate historian, the film illustrates how a medal is created at the mint. This is the first time a history of the medal has been assembled anywhere.
