About George H. Thomas

This web site is dedicated to the life of Major General George H. Thomas. He commanded the Army of the Cumberland after the Battle of Chickamauga, and he was one of the few great generals of the American Civil War. However today, for a number of reasons, General Thomas is relatively unknown to the general public. This website will address these issues.

Thomas was a Southerner and a career soldier who, at great personal loss, stood by the Union. George Henry Thomas was a man of honor and courage in a time of great turmoil. His story deserves to be known by future generations of Americans.
