|Just read an article in Smithsonian magazine's March 2007 issue called "Catching Up With 'Old Slow Trot" by Ernest B. Furgurson. He writes convincingly about General George Henry Thomas being "cheated by history"--that he was one of the Union's most brilliant strategists--even comparing him to George Washington. I hadn't read anything about him before, but I had stayed in a hotel in Washington DC on Thomas Circle where his statue-on-horseback stands and had wondered who he was. Now I know, and I'm really glad to have read something about him--it's a great story.
