George H. Thomas (1816-1870) was a Virginian who elected to remain loyal to the Union, even though that decision cost him his family (his sisters never spoke to him again). He is best known as the "Rock of Chickamauga", although his crowning glory was his decisive victory over forces under the command of John Bell Hood at Nashville, Tennessee in December 1864.
