He was next sent tothe west of Fort Orford, Oregon, in 1855, and John participated in the Rogue River Wars of 1856.

1.This man in the picture General John Reynolds .2. The son of John and Lydia Reynolds, John Fulton Reynolds was born at Lancaster, PA on September 20, 1820. Initially educated in nearby Lititz. Opinions differ about the details of the general's death. There are different versions of the time of death (not 10:15, not 10:40 - 10:50) and the place itself (part of the ridge Vostoyanaya McPherson about the positions of the 2nd Wisconsin Regiment or Western, about the 19th Indiana). 3.Dzhon Rothman has played the role of General Reynolds in the movie "Gettysburg." Reynolds also was present in the movie "Gods and Generals" but then deleted it from the script

Hi Mr. Hendricks,

1. I believe the man in the picture to be the General John Reynolds, well known Union leader.
2. One of John Reynolds's achievements was leading the 3rd DIvision of the Pennsylvania Reserves at the Battle of Second Bull Run. A second would have to be him commanding the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 6th corps.
3. John Reynolds was a close friend of the 15th President of the United States, James Buchanan. James Buchanan and John Reynolds were both from Lancaster.
