Henry Johnson was an African American U.S. Army  soldier who fought heroically in the 369th Infantry Regiment of the U.S. Army in World War I. In May 1918 in the Argonne Forest of Northeast France, Johnson fought off a German raid in hand-to-hand combat, killing multiple German soldiers and rescuing a fellow soldier before fainting from the 21 wounds with which he was afflicted.
