George Thomas Signature & Rank

George H. Thomas Signature on a 2.25" x 3.875” cream colored stock card signed "GeoH Thomas” and inscribed "Maj Genl USA" in a bold vibrant ink. Evidence of prior mounting on corners and ink ghosting from where another document rested.

Thomas served in the Mexican–American War and later chose to remain with the U.S. Army for the Civil War as a Southern Unionist, despite his heritage as a Virginian. He won one of the first Union victories in the war, at Mill Springs in Kentucky, and served in important subordinate commands at Perryville and Stones River. His stout defense at the Battle of Chickamauga in 1863 saved the Union Army from being completely routed, earning him his most famous nickname, "the Rock of Chickamauga.

This item comes with a Certificate from John Reznikoff, a premier authenticator for both major 3rd party authentication services, PSA and JSA (James Spence Authentications), as well as numerous auction houses.
