Wonderful site. My great great grandfather was Captain William Thomas, 82nd Virginia Militia, Madison County, and was supposed to be a distant cousin of the general. Please contact me.

I really think your web site is creative. My ancestors are related to Gen. George Thomas, Welsh Thomas-Davies-Roane of Virginia. I am also a direct descendant of R. E. Lee, His mother Hill-Carter. My great grandfathers J. B. Pullen, William Holloway rode in the 7th Cav. Co. B with Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest Tipton Co. Tenn. Their big battle was Brice's Cross Roads, Miss. My mother's side fought for the North under Gen. George Meade. The fighting Irish, New York 69th, and the 57th Penna. Both sides of my ancestors met at Gettysburg, except for Gen. Forrest's Cavalry.

Good stuff. Am coming on holiday, in family, to the USA this summer, and, in the course of doing my homework for the trip, have been much impressed by Thomas: he didn't have temper tantrums, but at the same time didn't let anybody - whether foe or nominal friend - bully him.

Please don't assume that your site will be visited only by people from the USA.

I think General Thomas was one of the unsung heroes of the Civil War, and was without a doubt the best tactician of both armies

On the Union side, most attention focuses on the Army of the Potomac, because they fought Lee and were close to New York and Washington, where the major newspapers were, or on the Army of the Tennessee, because they seem to most fit that rough, tough frontier image we Americans are so fond of. But my favorite has always been the Army of the Cumberland and its leader, George H. Thomas. I once read somewhere that Sherman said that if Thomas had commanded the troops he faced, he never would have gotten to Atlanta. Most of Sherman's command, roughly three-fifths I believe, was Thomas's Army of the Cumberland. There also is no event more remarkable in that war, in my opinion than when Thomas's men, supposed to stop at the first defensive line, went right on up the cliffs of Missionary Ridge. Comparable to it is only the Rangers at Pointe du Hoc in World War II, and they were specially trained elite troops.

I believe that General Thomas was one of my ancestors. I am studying the lines now.

August 6, I was at a Thomas family reunion in Vergas, MN.
The relatives have traced Gen. Thomas's background and believe him to be related to Thomas's in Minnesota.

Nice site on Gen. Thomas, one of my favorite C W heroes. Great pics of the Thomas family home there in Southampton County, VA. Now days the fence line is gone there by the huge live oak, but if you study the photo carefully you can see the marker that indicates the family plot where Gen. Thomas' parents and brother and sisters are buried.

your web-site goes a long way in correcting an injustice to this American patriot a contemporary civil war painting 'Lincoln and his generals' features the president flanked by Thomas along with grant and Sherman. today, Thomas is not even mentioned in the history books few Americans aside from historians know who the Rock of Chickamauga is.

For years I've been fascinated with General Thomas and the XIV Corps. Thomas was arguably one of the best Generals on either side of the civil war, yet he remains almost totally unknown. Try typing his name into Yahoo and you find nothing.
Thomas was the "real McCoy" and his story is worthy of a film. I work in educational television, and would be interested in hearing from people with scripts and/or story ideas

Good site. Here is another "What If". What if Halleck had not acquiesced in Thomas's refusal to replace Buell, but said something to the effect, "General Thomas, your sense of loyalty and honor is appreciated, but my order stands."

Outstanding site, especially crisp photo and music quality. A great way to get at an understanding of perhaps the greatest Union Officer, as measured by personal character and professional skill, of the War.

Have enjoyed immensely your write up on George Thomas. I feel he was the best Union general in the CW, barring none.
He was handicapped being a Virginian but proved to be a true Unionist. Am enjoying all of your articles.

After reading your accounts here, my first impression is, "The man was a saint." My great-grandmother was a Thomas. Her father was from North Carolina, but was born in Ireland. Do you know of General Thomas' ancestry? I would be interested to read about his genealogy.

Thank you so much for an inspiring Website.

Sincerely,
William R. Massey of Franklin, Tennessee
