Thomas Custer and the Little Big Horn

Many people realize that George Armstrong Custer died at the battle of the Little Big Horn but few realize that two of Custer's brothers also died that day and that one of his brothers was a two-time Medal of Honor winner. 

Thomas Custer died on this day 139 years ago at the Little Big Horn. He is one of just 19 soldiers to have earned more than one Medal of Honor.

  1. I did not know anyone ever earned more than one medal of honor. Interesting.
