Henry Hogan (March 8, 1840 – April 20, 1916) was a First Sergeant in the United States Army during the Black Hills War. He is noted as one of only nineteen individuals to receive the Medal of Honor twice.
Hogan was originally from County Clare, Ireland. He received his first citation for gallantry in action against Sitting Bull's Lakota warriors at the 1876 Battle of Cedar Creek, and the second one for a dramatic rescue of his lieutenant in the 1877 fight at Bear Paw Mountain. Hogan carried him off the field in the midst of heavy fire from the Indian warriors. He was a member of Company G of the 5th U.S. Infantry under Col. Nelson A. Miles.
Hogan is buried in the Custer County Cemetery in Miles City, Montana.
