I'm impressed. We just got on the internet and I have no idea how you make music play and put photos on , or even make a web page. I guess it will just take some time. Congratulations on your award.

Being a native Virginian, and a Civil War Buff is has always bother me that Thomas's role in the Civil War is also forgotten today. It is very nice to see a home page dedicated to him.

Thank you

I am the wife of R Martin but do alot of research for family history. Wonderful information on the Commander of my great grandfather,Jesse Moses Bumgardner, who was

in McDonald's Comp. under Thomas when he won against Hood.
This piece of information I knew briefly from his records, but to see it all in order. Brilliant....Thank you for all your work and research. Bonnie Martin of the MO Ozarks

I am glad to see the best general our country had on the Union getting some recognition. He is buried 50 miles east of me in Troy. I plan on visiting his gravesite. Few people in this area even know who this great man is, or his accomplishments! THANKS!!

Gen Thomas was born just outside the little town of Newsoms, VA,my home town. His home place was restored a few years ago, but is a private residence not open to the public. Local folklore has it that, when Gen Thomas elected not to join his native state in the great rebellion, his mother turned his portrait around so that it faced the wall and never saw his face again. This may or may not be true, but sure makes a good story. Southampton County gave the war another fine general--Billy Mahone of Crater fame.

Gen George H Thomas was my grand mothers uncle, she knew all the stories of how his family treated him when he decided to fight for the Union. I'm trying to find the connection. La Verne

Hello. Thanks for the great page. I have been a Thomas fan for many years. In fact a very good friend of mine is doing research for a book on Thomas. We visited the Thomas grave, in the Kellogg plot, in Troy, NY this last July.

My friend sees Thomas' performance, at Chickamauga, as one of the few major decisive moments of the war. Had Thomas not held and Rosecrans not given time to form a defensive line at Chattanooga, the Federals would have been fofced backacross the Tennessee River towards Nashville. This would have meant another campaign to take Chattanooga, and another Tullahoma. This would take time, time which would mean that Sherman's campaign for Atlanta, and it's subsequent capture. If this had been delayed past the November elections, the outcome of those elections would have speculative at best. See ya.

Nice Site! I just finished Francis F McKinney's

"Education In Violence", a bio of Thomas and a history of the Army of the Cumberland. Thomas, probably unheard of by most Americans, was a key figure of the Civil War and a great general. Virginia's loss was America's gain!
