Meet Major General George Henry Thomas and his wife to learn how a man born on a slave-holding plantation in Virginia became a graduate of West Point and later fought for the U.S. Army in the Mexican-American War. At the outbreak of the Civil War, Thomas did not resign his commission in the U.S. Army. His decision to remain loyal to the Union created a deep rift with his family, one that would not heal in his lifetime.
