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!

My fathers name was George H. Thomas, and we've always admired The General and we are always finding stories about him. We may not be related to him but he means a lot to this country! Thanks for your info on him!

Really like your page, great picture. My family includes a Thomas line, but I have not as yet been able to tie it to the General. I welcome any mail on the Thomas family.

Greetings: I am delighted to have happened upon the General's website. I am researching Dr. Mary Edwards Walker for living history performances and re-enactment. Need answers to many questions: did General Thomas actually commission her? Was she regarded as Lieutenant and did her uniform reflect such? I would appreciate guidance.
