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.

I have always liked Thomas because he put his country first. He was a southern unionist, he could see the right .Why couldn't Robert E. Lee?

This website is absolutely fabulous...I mean...who knew that the ol' Rock of Chickamauga went by the nickname "pap" now that's good stuff!

Was born in Syracuse, west of Troy, but now live along the
Alabama-Georgia border. From what I've read about the General, he and his brother did get along; his sisters,
though, disowned him after he chose to fight for the Union.
While both belittled him, Grant and Sherman depended on Thomas to cover their backsides. And 'Old Pap' never let them down.
Thank you for a great site. I'm sure General Thomas would

Retirement has enabled me to research some ancestral Civil War History, which has focused my interest on General Thomas. My grandfather's uncle died on the field at Resaca under Thomas with the 88th Indiana Infantry Vols. After about my sixth book it appears plain that the War was won in the West, and that Thomas' role was the most critical one played. Thus, if he had not saved the Rosecrans army at Chickamauga, then probably Chattanooga would have been lost, then Atlanta would never have taken place, then Lincoln probably would not have been reelected, etc. The sad part is, though now a satisfied resident of Virginia, the State has never recognized Thomas' greatness. Something should be done about that, I am thinking.
What a wonderful find, this web site. Congratulations to its maker.

Great reading! Thomas is my g,g,g,g uncle. To this day my grandfather has a picture of Thomas facing the wall. It's a great topic of discussion between us.

My ggg grandfather Gideon C. Moody in 1861, soon after the beginning of the Civil War, Messrs. Milroy and Moody raised the Ninth Indiana Infantry,Of which Mr. Milroy was made Col, Mr. Moody becoming captain of Company G. On Nov.15, 1862 was promoted colonel, and soon afterward was mustered out of the service in order that he might accept a post of Captain in the Nineteenth United States Infantry, a command in which he served until the spring of 1846, the greater portion of the time on the staff of Gen. George H. Thomas. In May 1864 his term of enlistment having expired, and it being apparent the the war was nearing its end, he resigned his commission in the army and was appointed by the secretary of the war to proceed the Dakota terr. Please, if it is at all possible would supply any information of Captain Moody's service records.

You've done a wonderful job of memorializing one of the greatest major generals of the Civil War.
