Sgt. John E. Buffington took modesty to a new level. This is what his family thinks, and after considering his performance on the battlefields of the Civil War, there can only be one response; they're right.He was fighting in a time when soldiers on the front lines woke up every day to play the odds of survival. They gambled with their lives as they fought on smoke-covered terrain charging through fusillades of bullets and shrapnel. Many never made it. But Buffington was lucky enough to beat the odds of death.
