Civil War Streets: Major General George Henry Thomas a.k.a. “The Rock of Chickamauga”. – By Mark Pearson

Continuing on up 10th Avenue, the next street is Thomas, as in Major General George Henry Thomas, also called “The Rock of Chickamauga.” George Thomas was born in Southampton, Virginia on July 31, 1816, and graduated West Point in 1836. He taught there in 1854 and many of the cadets that were students went on to be generals in the Confederate army, such as Jeb Stewart and John Bell Hood. Being from Virginia, he and Robert E. Lee were close friends and, as a result, for many years and at many times his loyalty to the union was being questioned by many of his peers.

He also fought in the Mexican War, as did many of his contemporary’s, but stayed in the army and was posted in the west.

Writer/director Elise Finnerty’s striking first feature film, The Ones You Didn’t Burn, had its World Premiere at this year’s virtual Chattanooga Film Festival and opens with the befitting Henry David Thoreau quote, “I believe that men are generally still a little afraid of the dark, though the witches are all hung.” The Ones You Didn’t Burn goes on to artfully present the story of a family seemingly cursed by the actions of those who came before them with strong performances and remarkably haunting visuals.
