My great-great grandfather was with Thomas at Chickamauga Creek. He was Col. Newell Gleason (later brev. Brig Gen), commanding officer of the 87th Indiana Infantry Regiment under Vanderver's Brigade, Brannon's 3rd Division, and Thomas' Corp. Liked the site!

George H Thomas was simply the most important general to serve in the ACW. His innovations changed military thinking and tactics forever. What Grant called the "slows" and criticized Thomas for was actually preparation. And of the kind and extent unknown to the Union head general. It was the work of Thomas that was studied by future generations of officers and not the antiquated, bloody tactics of men such as Grant and Lee. Old Pap was generations ahead of his time and his victory at Nashville was the most complete victory on the field of battle of the ACW.

This is wonderful to find. I am a distant cousin of General
Thomas on my mothers side. I appreciate so very much the work you've done.

George Thomas Ernst was born today, January 12, 2001 in Overland ParkKansas. My first grandchild. We'll have to call him "The Rock" or "The Hammer".

Thanks for an excellent site on the man who I consider the most complete Union General.

Thanks for this page. Thomas has never received the full recognition for all
his achievements and the sacrifices he made to defend the Union. I think that he was the best of them all- from Lee and Jackson to Sherman and Grant. He may have been considered slow but his preparation saved lives and led to victory after victory. I'm hoping someone writes the definitive biography of this under appreciated general sometime in the future and that his many accomplishments may be recognized. Thanks again

I am an ardent admirer of General Thomas. It's sad that he receives less attention than other generals who were nowhere near his equal.

Could you tell me why you maintain a website on George Thomas? Is he an
ancestor or is there another reason. Thanks.

I have lived most of my life on parts of the Chickamauga Battlefield, and have a great interest in the events that occurred here. The heroic stand of General Thomas and his troops at what we locally refer to as Snodgrass Hill is widely respected, even among us born and true Southerners.

Thank you for this site! A respectful salute

Hello!! I am writing to you now from the birthplace of General Thomas in Newsoms, Virginia. I am the current owner & reside with my wife in this beautiful country house that still has that magnificent oak tree in the front yard. Thought I would drop you a note to let you know how much I enjoy your website dedicated to the "Rock of Chickamauga".

While I am interested in the Civil War in a general way, I would definitely not consider myself a "War Buff". After doing some reading about his exploits, it is obvious that General Thomas was definitely a fine leader of men and one who never got his just recognition while he was alive.

Keep up the good work !

Stayed at the Wyndam in DC on Thomas circle and wanted to learn more about someone who had such a memorial.
