Joseph Kimball's Medal of Honor for Capturing the "Bloody 6th's" Battle Flag/ Custer Connection

I looked it up and Joseph Kimball did receive a Medal of Honor while serving in Company B, 2nd West Virginia Cavalry, for capturing the 6th North Carolina's battleflag. //// Also, Tom Custer, the brother of George Custer who later died alongside his brother at the Battle of the Little Big Horn in 1876, received two Medals of Honor within a week of each other. One was for capturing the battleflag of the 2nd North Carolina and the other was at Sailor's Creek for bravery. //// --Old Secesh
