Though I am an avid follower of the Iron Brigade, I have got to rank George Thomas as the most unsung Union hero of the war. The innovations he brought to warfare remain a tribute to his genius at making war. His refusal to commit until ready at Nashville is a tribute to his concern for his men.

The best and most innovated. given the shaft by men of lesser talents. His only fault was loyalty to his commanders and hatred of the political army where talent was no competition. He saved his army and could have saved lives if put in charge of all the armies of the union.

I was interested in seeing the name Thomas on a Civil War monument in LaGrange, Ohio. The names on the monument were:
Grant, Sherman, Sheridan and Thomas. As my maiden name was Thomas, I decided to do some research. My husband found a book on the Civil War by Robert Paul Jordon (National Geographic staff) and was pleased to see a few pages that mentioned Gen. Thomas.

An extremely interesting & enlightening web of information about a man that has pages of history drawn by others that has buried his accomplishments in this period of America's jounrey to greatness. Nothing has changed. Politics and or money rules and the truly worthy can be only remembered by such people like you in this fashion.

Enjoyed your website immensely. I have been a Civil War "buff" for many years and have always felt that General Thomas never received the credit that was his due. I personally feel that he was arguably the "best" general of the war on either side as he never lost a battle and was the only Union general to drive a Confederate Army from the field in a complete rout!

My eighth grade teacher, 1957-58, Sister Petronilla, told me after I graduated from grade school that her name before she entered the Benedictine Sisters was Agnes Thomas and that she was related to Gen. Thomas. She would probably have been a niece or grandniece. She told me about Gen. Thomas and the conflicts of conscience that soldiers like Gen. Thomas and Gen. Lee underwent; also that Gen. Thomas was considered the black sheep of the family because he fought for the Union. Sister had a very cultured Virginia accent which we kids thought was English. She was a good teacher and took no nonsense from us brats; truly the General's relative; I suspect her name ("Little Rock") was taken from her famous relative.

Thanks for having this site!

Any pointers in the right direction would be appreciated.

One of the truly great military commanders of the 19th Century, if not the 20th also. Also, a true "Profile of Courage."
He carried a greater patriotic burden than his more heralded Southern classmates.

Hi there:
Just found out about this site thru a fellow BarFly's posting the URL!

Am a Canadian, from south Alberta. Born in the CrowsNest Pass, grew up on a mixed far, SW of Claresholm, Alberta. We got electricity when I was 14, so my skills are quite varied. the 30-odd years of Seismic surveying used _most_ of them, including cow-milking, by hand. Grin.

I have been told that I am a descendant of Gen. George H. Thomas. My grandfather's name was Ralph Waldo Thomas who was born in Chicago in 1873. He told my brother and I that the General was related to us, but I can't remember how. I know that the Gen did not have any children but had 5 or 6 brothers/sisters. If anyone has a family tree of the the family of Gen. George, I would appreciate a response
thanks

If you go back to that website, and scan down to "beer/artist" you'll get the Ken Hendricksen page,
and then, the samples of his Civil War artwork that are available. On further investigation, there's also "Civil War Cigars" but fortunately/unfortunately George IS NOT
on a cigar box, like Lee or Grant, and several others.

Major General George Henry Thomas is one of twelve Civil War Generals "immortalized" on the labels of Battleground Ale. At least you can also send away for a separate copy print....

I am a public schoolteacher in Virginia where RELee is revered. Each year state law requires us to teach about the noble general who renounced his allegiance to his country in order to remain loyal to the Commonwealth. I have decided to make it my cause to lobby the powers that be to add one more Virginian to the state Standards of Learning. George Thomas faced the same choice but arrived at a very different decision. I think his home state should honor him as well.

I have found titles of several recommended biographies on this site. I wonder if there have been any written for younger readers. If they exist, I hope someone can point them out to me. If not, I may have to write my own.

It is satisfying to find others who agree that, when all is said and done, there was no finer general, on either side of that unfortunate war, than MGen G. H. Thomas - the only commander to lead not just one, but two successful assaults on 'dug-in' and prepared defenders. A general must be measured by what his troops did, and his men did more than any.

I am pleased to see greater recognition--tho much belated--of probably the most outstanding general of the Civil War. Most of us learned early on that Lee was the most formidable warrior and that Grant, Sherman, et. al., won the war with superior resources. None approached Thomas in any military capacity, yet he was continually subject to the jealousies of Halleck and the North's generals as well as the not-always-astute choices of Lincoln. Further, in spite of having been loyal to his oath to the United States as opposed to the Confederacy, Virginia has again reclaimed Thomas as one of its own and applauds his greatness as a military leader. (Among recent works, Thomas Buell's Warrior Generals should be high on anyone's reading list.) Good web site!

I believe that Gen. Thomas was the kind of man that learned from his mistakes, and the mistakes of his peers to become ever more proficient in his Art of War, which set him apart from the vast majority of his fellow generals both north and south. Certainly he was vital to the success of the Western campaigns.

Have completed several papers on MG Thomas, as well as read numerous books on the man. Without question he is one of the great professional military minds of the 19th century. In terms of the U.S. Civil War, the only comparable Rebel general in terms of ability would be Forrest, whose inherent genius outweighed his lack of schooling. Even so, he probably couldn't have commanded a formal army as well as Thomas. Patrick Cleburne is a close second. Imagine what Thomas might have achieved for the Confederacy. Of course, their lack of technology and material would have hindered Thomas in ways serving the Union did not. It must gall pro-confederates no end that "Old Pap" stuck with the colors.

My father, uncle, grandfather, and my oldest son all have been named after Gen. Thomas. My great, great grandfather served with him during the Civil War. We revere his name and I am trying to ensure that his memory is handed down to my future family generations. I live in a state that vilifies his name to this day. I was at a Civil War reenactment and mentioned that my forebear served with Gen. Thomas. The confederate "officers" couldn't believe that I could possibly be proud of my connection with this traitor to the great state of Virginia and the Bonney Blue Flag. They were serious! I thought that they would at least acknowledge that he was a good soldier if not a truly great one but they would have none of it. It just proved to me that he must have been truly effective in his part of quashing the rebellion. Lee Barrows

I've been a great fan of "Old Pap" Thomas for a long time & have always thought he'd gotten the short end of the stick from the Grant, Sherman, Sheridan clique. He was the great chessmaster, conserving his men & doing great damage to the enemy while seldom taking a backward step. I love your site & learn even more about my favorite Union General.

After viewing a sample of the visitors log, I think I am one of the few viewers who is -not- a descendant of Gen. Thomas. I can only imagine the pride I would feel if I was. It's a shame that he never got the recognition he deserved in his time, and it's a disgrace the way he is still maligned, even to this day.

I am gathering as much information I can for a family tree I've been told that the General is my great great great great uncle. My Grand Father Parker Thomas was from Virginia and to compare their photographs is a study of duplication. Thank you. Mark Smith Waterford Mi.

I'm so glad to see a web site dedicated specifically to General Thomas. In speaking to people about the Civil War, I am frequently disappointed to discover that few have ever heard of the man. He was, without doubt, the finest military commander of that era, and perhaps of any other period as well.

My maiden name is Thomas And George Henry Thomas is alledgedly an ancestor through my father's side. The problem I have is no one wants to admit he is related to us.
My cousin did a family tree in 1988 but it seems the dates he started with were right after G.H.Thomas's time.My dad's family live in West Point Mississippi. My father did just tell him that yes we are related to G.H.Thomas but they do not like to speak of him. If anyone knows any info I sure would love to have it. I have never known if he and his wife had children.I know he must be a relative because when I look at his picture I see my father's features.
I have so much respect and admiration for George Henry Thomas that it would be an honor to call him my family.
Any information about his family's geneology would be greatly appreciated.
Sincerely,
Tina-Marie Thomas Tichinel

General George was my great great grandfather. My family has posession of his uniforms and associated gear including an army 45, a statue of GH in uniform was displayed in Lansing, MI at the rotunda of the State capitol building, when my aunt died the receipt for these aritfacts was lost.
The rotunda was remodeled about 1955 and all of the civil war artifacts were taken to a storeroom. We have been unable to obtain GH's belongings at this writing because
the caretaker for the capitol building would not honor our request without the receipt which was issued in the late 1800's. We will keep trying however.

I am researching my Thomas ancestry on my mother's side and have just found your wonderful website, which I look forward to perusing further!

My grandmother apparently told my mother when she was a girl that we were somehow related to General Thomas, and I am very interested in learning more about his genealogy. My earliest known Thomas ancestor was a Robert Thomas, tailor, who was born about 1820 in Maryland. He married Malinda E. Kepler, their son Robert Murray Thomas b. 1864 was my 2g-grandfather. I am very interested in any information about General Thomas' family. If anyone has any and would be willing to share, please contact me directly.

Thanks for the wonderful site!

My great grandfather served under Thomas throughout the war. He was with the 10th IN Inf. which Thomas always trusted to be right with him in battle. They were there with him at the end in Chicagmauga where they fired the first shots. They also fired the first shots at Mill Springs. My great grandfather served much of his time as a Provost Guard at the Brig. Headquarters and probably saw Thomas often. It is sad that the politics of the era overshadowed this great man. A simple statute and a circle in Wash., D.C. are not fitting enough for what he did for his country. Maybe he wanted it that way?
