Federal generals killed in battle—group no. 1—army and corps commanders

Maj.-Gen. James B. McPherson, Atlanta. July 22. 1861.

Maj.-Gen. Jos. K. Mansfield, Antietam, September 18, 1864.

Maj.-Gen. John Sedgwick, Spotsylvania, May 9, 1864.

Maj.-Gen. John F. Reynolds, Gettysburg, July 1, 1863.

on this and the following six pages are portraits of the fifty-one Union generals killed in battle. Beneath each portrait is the date and place of death, or mortal wounding. Since no such pictorial necrology existed to aid the editors of this History, many questions arose—such as the determination of the actual rank of an officer at a given date, or the precise circumstances of death in certain instances. The list of Colonel W. F. Fox, presented in his work on Regimental losses in the Civil War, has been followed.
