Trying to find out as much about the General as I can. He was my mothers great uncle. Everyone on the Thomas side of the family is dead. I am looking for any information about uncle George I can find. Thank You

Nice site. I think it is a better site than Thomas was a General.

I have only been on the internet for 2 weeks, and thouorghly enjoying it. I had no idea that there was this much information out there. Civil War is one of my favorite subjects. We are going to McMinnville, TN. at the end of the month. It is about 40 miles from Murfreesboro. Hope to visit some of the sites there. This is a totally awesome web site. Especially the music. This is the first site that I visited that had music. Thanks You So Much

Great site! Glad to see Thomas getting the proper attention he well deserves!
Two questions:
(1) Do you know if there is any likelihood that _Education in Violence_ will be reprinted in hardback?
(2) Do you know whether any re-enactor portrays Thomas as part of living history presentations?

I was a member of the 19th Infantry Regiment during the Korean War. Our regimental crest bore the words "The Rock Of Chickamauga" Do you know how the 19th. received this motto? Were they part of the battle?

I am a Thomas. My grandfather mentioned that the General was his uncle? My Grandfather's name was George W. Thomas. My Great Grandfather was named William Thomas who married Eva Ralph who came to the US from Wales. Did the General have brothers? If so what was their names?
Thank You,

Have been researching info on the 40th Ohio Vol. Inf. which became part of the Army of the Cumberland under Thomas at Chickamauga/Chattanooga etc. My ggrandfather was in Co. A of that outfit and from what I'm told, was a huge fan of General Thomas and talked about him frequently. Thanks for the interesting website.

Mary Walker was given the MOH because after the war she demanded a pension for her services. Rather then give her a pension that she didn't deserve, she was given the medal to shut her up. (The requirements to receive it during the civil war were far less stringent then they are today). It was properly revoked and should have stayed that way. It was reinstated for political reasons by gutless politicos.

Gen Thomas may be a relative of ours. My G-Grandmother was Amanda Larilla Thomas and she said that he is a relative of hers. I also have a photo of William Tecumseh Sherman that is an original (wallet size)

I would be greatly interested in any web sites you have concerning General Thomas. He is in my family tree and am interested in finding out what ever I can about him. My great great grandfather married Mary Thomas and I am trying to find out how she is related to him as well.

Thank you kindly for the use of your resources. My Grandfather was a John Thomas, born in Coventry, VT. I am not sure of the details but he was the nephew (or perhaps the grand-nephew?) of the General. I'm not sure how such relationships are classified.

In any event, at one point an uncle of mine tracked down the genaeology and verified the relationship. I have e-mailed the link to your site to my son. He is aware of the relationship but I wanted to take a moment to say thank you: I have always stressed to him that we all need to know where we came from in order to know where we are going. It must have taken since his major is History/Lit. Thank you again,

This is a wonderful web page about a very important man in American history who is little known.

Great site! One of the truly Great Americans. Winfield Scott being another.
