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.

From my readings, General Thomas seems to have been fascinating, talented and under-appreciated.

Gen. Thomas is a role model for us all. Duty without ambition and selfishness.
Preparation: Organization: Action!

After years of reading about the Civil War, I realized that the "heroes" touted by the historians, especially Grant and Sherman, simply were not adequate on their own to account for the Union's victory over the Confederacy. I began to realize that the real heroes of the Union, men like G. Gordon Meade, John Gibbon, and especially George Henry Thomas were overlooked and even unfairly denigrated by historians of the 1920s, '30s and '40s in favor of creating some kind of cult of personality around Sherman and Grant. It's encouraging to see that Old Slow Trot is not forgotten. Nor should he ever be. He was one of the first modern citizens of this nation, who realized that the United States is! Not the United States are.

I agree that General Thomas was one of the greatest generals of the Union Army in the Civil War.

A great site for a much maligned general officer. The Snake Creek Gap episode is given its due. Had Thomas been allowed to move against Johnston's rear, a much different outcome would have resulted, a fact that is pretty common knowledge now, thanks to the notes cited in your site and other current authors to whom you point. You might also include McMurry's fine Atlanta 1864, which also tells the Thomas story in that campaign. Grant and Sherman are here, as elsewhere nowadays, shown up for what they were, petty, jealous, political animals who, far from being the heroes of legend, are seen to have contributed to the length of the war and the extent of its casualties. I'll visit this site often. Many thanks for your service to a fine and much maligned officer!

I'm doing a project on John B. Hood for school, and I found out that George
Thomas taught Hood at West Point, then had to fight him in one of the battles
of the Civil War. I'm not sure which one...I've still got a lot more of
research to do!
