Pub. Date:
Most Southerners in the U.S. Army resigned their commissions to join the Confederacy in 1861. But at least one son of a distinguished, slaveholding Virginia family remained loyal to the Union. George H. Thomas fought for the North and was transformed by his wartime experiences from a slaveholder to a defender of civil rights. This book offers a fresh appraisal of an important career and lends new insight into the inner conflicts of the Civil War.
