by Larry J. Daniel: A review by Don Plezia (24 May 2004).
"There are many more incidents of these contortions of the truth or poor research by the Reverend Daniel. They are too many to refute individually, so I’ll leave it to the reader to question the need for this attempt to revise history."
||Essay Sheridan's Ride at Chickamauga
||Photos of "Thomaston" (Thomas's birthplace near Newsoms, VA) and Courtland where Thomas read law and clerked before going to West Point. Also an essay "Bring Thomas Home."|
Photos of conditions at Thomas Reservation (Orchard Knob park) in Chattanooga, where Thomas (behind Grant's back) directed the battle on 24 and 25 Nov. 1863. It is underutilized and neglected, and trash is regularly deposited against the walls or in the street. In addition, the west wall is crumbling.

Nov. 09. After 5 years of traveling (Mexico and Brazil) and
letting this website lie fallow, I'm back. I've just almost completed a
major overhaul of the website, repairing the map links, correcting
texts, and fussing with meta tags. Please let me know if I've missed
major new essay on
The Battle of Kennesaw Mountain: Sherman's Worst Day of the War
In a career of nothing but low points, this was the lowest. Click here to read medium rough draft.
||My 5 year old article
"Schofield vs. Stanley" has been
expanded. Full of malice
It will be expanded further as I read up on Halleck.
