2 MOH Recipients Currently Live In Ohio

253 Medals of Honor are Accredited to Ohio

  • Born in Ohio, the only man to receive TWO Medals of Honor during the Civil Was was Lt. Thomas Custer.   Custer's Medals of Honor are accredited to the State of Michigan where he entered military service.

"For Conspicuous Gallantry and Intrepidity in Action At the Risk of Life Above and Beyond the Call of Duty"

 

Due the large number of Medals of Honor accredited to Ohio we have divided the Recipients into three separate pages.

Civil War

Born in OH with MOHs Accredited to other States (68)

 

The following Medal of Honor Recipients were BORN in the State of Ohio but either moved to or enlisted in military service in another state to which their award is accredited.  By virtue of their birth, they are still among our "Home Town Heroes".
