"Fighting Joe"

Tommy Thompson painted "Fighting Joe," a golf course named for Fighting Joe Wheeler, who was a Confederate General known for his unshakable courage during the Civil War. Wheeler Dam across the Tennessee River was also named for the fightingest general. This golf course is part of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in the Shoals, Alabama. Thompson's impressionistic style painting was done "en plein air." This artwork is now available through Savage Gallery in Nashville, Tennessee.
