Custer did lose flags during the Civil War. At Gettysburg alone the 7th Michigan Cavalry lost a guidon. Good website on the 7th Michigan losing a flag:http://www.echoesofgettysburg.com/id44.html notice they say "colors", it was a guidon that was captured. In the book "Colors of the Gray", The museum of the Confederacy's flag collection. On page 44, "Headquarters, Gen. George A. Custer, U.S.A, Swallowtail. Red and blue field divided horizontally, orange applique crossed swords (30x31 with loss). Captured by Confederate forces. War Department number 314. Recaptured at Saylor's Creek, April 1865 by Maj. John Allestron, 3rd New York Cavalry. As far as "Custer securing the first flag captured", this would have been impossible since he was not in a regiment. He was on staff duty and the flag was handed to him to be turned in. While turning in the flag, he claimed HE captured it. Custer hung 7 of Mosby's men in November, 1864. Mosby captured 23 of Custer's men and 7 men had to pick "lots" to see who was going to die. Of the 7 men picked, one was my family member. George Prouty, Company L, 5th Michigan was hung and on OR 43 page 566 says that clearly and only mentions my family member's name. "Measure for Measure". Custer was not even born or raised in Michigan. He was born and raised in Ohio. Shawn Prouty
