Union general and Munfordville native Thomas J. Wood is the subject of the third book published by Hardin County author Dan Lee.
“Thomas J. Wood: A Biography of the Union General in the Civil War” recounts the life of the Kentuckian who was a boyhood friend of Confederate general Simon Bolivar Buckner and later served in the Mexican War on the staff of Gen. Zachary Taylor.
During the Civil War, Wood commanded a division in the Union Army of the Cumberland.
Wood’s mother was one of the Helms, a prominent Elizabethown family, giving him a strong personal Hardin County connection.
Published by McFarland, “Thomas J. Wood” follows two previous books from Lee from the same publishing company. The author’s first book was “Kentuckian in Blue: A Biography of Major General Lovell Harrison Rousseau.” Lee’s second book was “The L&N Railroad in the Civil War.”
From Cecilia, Lee also has been a contributor to North & South magazine.
