I have always liked Thomas because he put his country first. He was a southern unionist, he could see the right .Why couldn't Robert E. Lee?

Was born in Syracuse, west of Troy, but now live along the
Alabama-Georgia border. From what I've read about the General, he and his brother did get along; his sisters,
though, disowned him after he chose to fight for the Union.

While both belittled him, Grant and Sherman depended on Thomas to cover their backsides. And 'Old Pap' never let them down.

Thank you for a great site. I'm sure General Thomas would
approve.

Retirement has enabled me to research some ancestral Civil War History, which has focused my interest on General Thomas. My grandfather's uncle died on the field at Resaca under Thomas with the 88th Indiana Infantry Vols. After about my sixth book it appears plain that the War was won in the West, and that Thomas' role was the most critical one played. Thus, if he had not saved the Rosecrans army at Chickamauga, then probably Chattanooga would have been lost, then Atlanta would never have taken place, then Lincoln probably would not have been reelected, etc. The sad part is, though now a satisfied resident of Virginia, the State has never recognized Thomas' greatness. Something should be done about that, I am thinking.

What a wonderful find, this web site. Congratulations to its maker.

Great reading! Thomas is my g,g,g,g uncle. To this day my grandfather has a picture of Thomas facing the wall. It's a great topic of discussion between us.

My ggg grandfather Gideon C. Moody in 1861, soon after the beginning of the Civil War, Messrs. Milroy and Moody raised the Ninth Indiana Infantry,Of which Mr. Milroy was made Col, Mr. Moody becoming captain of Company G. On Nov.15, 1862 was promoted colonel, and soon afterward was mustered out of the service in order that he might accept a post of Captain in the Nineteenth United States Infantry, a command in which he served until the spring of 1846, the greater portion of the time on the staff of Gen. George H. Thomas. In May 1864 his term of enlistment having expired, and it being apparent the the war was nearing its end, he resigned his commission in the army and was appointed by the secretary of the war to proceed the Dakota terr. Please, if it is at all possible would supply any information of Captain Moody's service records.

Thank you,
G. C. (Bud) Moody III

I am searching for any information for a veteran of the Civil War - his name was Hiram Benjamin Thomas. He was in the infantry in Kentucky (Shelby's Brigade). He began drawing pension in 1901 and later died in 1905. Can you help me?

Thanks

The greatest Union general of the Civil War who was not properly used by Lincoln.

I attended an elementary school in Rochester, NY in the 60's which was named George H. Thomas School # 49 (unfortunately, the school is no longer in existence). We were told that the school was named after a General in the Civil War, but not much more. Thanks for setting the record straight!

Good to see this site dedicated to the best southern general of the Civil War, even though he fought for the Union.

I enjoyed this web page. I am a 24 year resident of Virginia. Gen. Thomas represented the best of this state, both as a general and as military governor of Tennessee-Kentucky after the war. My adopted city provided another significant contributor to the Union, Alexander Dyer, Chief of Union Ordinance.

I am a descendent of a brother of Gen. Thomas. Is their a site on the web to get his genealogy?

Just wanted to say you have done an outstanding job on this site. I started doing some research on "old pap" in the last couple of years when a fiend of mine, Rudy Ayoroa, an artist and sculptor from my hometown of Danville, Ky did a painting and sculpture of Thomas. The statue is in a square in Lebanon, Ky where Thomas had his headquarters for a short time. Rudy also did a painting of Thomas at Chickamauga that I own. As someone who majored in history, I'm really impressed with the bibliography section and the fact that I can find some of the books I've been looking for on Thomas. Thank you.
