Major General John Fulton Reynolds

In the Civil War, Philadelphia-born George McClellan trained the eastern Union army and led it through the Battle of Antietam. A brilliant organizer faulted for excessive caution, he served briefly as Union General-in-chief. This bronze was commissioned and donated by the Grand Army of the Republic.

Born in Lancaster, PA, John Fulton Reynolds became one of the most respected Union generals. He was killed on the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863. This bronze, donated by the Reynolds Memorial Association, was one of Philadelphia's earliest public monuments to a Civil War soldier.
