A biography can be found on wikipedia under Edmund Rice (Medal of Honor).

Couple of neat things: I believe that the ship which he sailed on "Snow Squall" still exists as a hulk in the Falkland Islands; and like my great grandfather, he was probably promoted to BG upon retirement for his Civil War service. Amazing character, what a life he had! Ned
