Gen. Thomas is a role model for us all. Duty without ambition and selfishness.
Preparation: Organization: Action!

Thanks for maintaining this site about my favorite general, a man who's methods I am trying to learn from.

After years of reading about the Civil War, I realized that the "heroes" touted by the historians, especially Grant and Sherman, simply were not adequate on their own to account for the Union's victory over the Confederacy. I began to realize that the real heroes of the Union, men like G. Gordon Meade, John Gibbon, and especially George Henry Thomas were overlooked and even unfairly denigrated by historians of the 1920s, '30s and '40s in favor of creating some kind of cult of personality around Sherman and Grant. It's encouraging to see that Old Slow Trot is not forgotten. Nor should he ever be. He was one of the first modern citizens of this nation, who realized that the United States is! Not the United States are.

I agree that General Thomas was one of the greatest generals of the Union Army in the Civil War.

A great site for a much maligned general officer. The Snake Creek Gap episode is given its due. Had Thomas been allowed to move against Johnston's rear, a much different outcome would have resulted, a fact that is pretty common knowledge now, thanks to the notes cited in your site and other current authors to whom you point. You might also include McMurry's fine Atlanta 1864, which also tells the Thomas story in that campaign. Grant and Sherman are here, as elsewhere nowadays, shown up for what they were, petty, jealous, political animals who, far from being the heroes of legend, are seen to have contributed to the length of the war and the extent of its casualties. I'll visit this site often. Many thanks for your service to a fine and much maligned officer!

I'm doing a project on John B. Hood for school, and I found out that George
Thomas taught Hood at West Point, then had to fight him in one of the battles
of the Civil War. I'm not sure which one...I've still got a lot more of
research to do!

Trying to find out as much about the General as I can. He was my mothers great uncle. Everyone on the Thomas side of the family is dead. I am looking for any information about uncle George I can find. Thank You

Nice site. I think it is a better site than Thomas was a General.

I have only been on the internet for 2 weeks, and thouorghly enjoying it. I had no idea that there was this much information out there. Civil War is one of my favorite subjects. We are going to McMinnville, TN. at the end of the month. It is about 40 miles from Murfreesboro. Hope to visit some of the sites there. This is a totally awesome web site. Especially the music. This is the first site that I visited that had music. Thanks You So Much

Great site! Glad to see Thomas getting the proper attention he well deserves!
Two questions:
(1) Do you know if there is any likelihood that _Education in Violence_ will be reprinted in hardback?
(2) Do you know whether any re-enactor portrays Thomas as part of living history presentations?
