Were his ancesters from Wales?
Admin Reply by: admin
George Thomas' paternal forbears were Welsh and English, and his maternal ancestors were French Huguenot. His father's family, if originally Welsh, had lived in England for several generations before coming to America. Many members of the family died intestate, providing no clues in tracing their ancestral lineage.

Has anyone ever seen a picture of General Thomas' wife? We've seen lots of pictures of him and I would like to see what she looked like.

No, I have never found a photo or painting of Mrs. Thomas.

Do you know if the General smoked either cigars or a pipe? Thank you and keep up the great work.

No, I have never read that he smoked.

Excellant site; good corrective to the usual cheerleading of Grant and Sherman

General Thomas was a humble, unassuming man, a great leader and an unsung hero. "His private character was without a stain. He was the ideal of a soldier and a gentleman. Yet, as he was too modest to seek promotion or conspicuous position, his fame is small indeed in comparison with the value of the services he rendered to the country." (from: ILLUSTRIOUS AMERICANS: their lives and great achievements, Book III, p. 349) Thank you for your website. Gen. Thomas is a great American whom we can learn to emulate. 🙂

I'm glad to find this tribute to General Thomas. I think he is the most unappreciated of Civil War generals, and I think that he may have been the best battlefield general of the war. To my knowledge, he never lost a battle. A toast to his memory!

I am a big fan of General Thomas! Ever since first reading about him and his service to his country, I have looked to him as a role model (among other eminent historical figures).

Thanks for leaving a message. I think he is a great role model for all Americans.

I came looking for a GHT quote I had read I think in a book of the Battle of Chickamauga. I find another just as good. I read the section on Nashville to the end of which I had no or very little knowledge of. I am severely impressed. Thank you so much.

By the way, My mother was born in Troy NY.

Thank you for setting up this webpage. All Americans need to know about General Thomas. It is a travesty of justice that he has been almost forgotten. The three greatest generals in American history were all named George - Washington, Thomas, and Marshall.

You are a good judge of Generals. Wait, what about George Custer? Just kidding!!

Great civil war officer who remained loyal to his oath of service to the union.

He loved Virginia, but he loved the concept of the UNITED States more.

I own three original pictures of General Thomas and his troops in Tennessee, during the Civil War. These are signed by General Thomas. Would you like me to email you a photo of the photos?
