ACW039 - General John Buford - Gettysburg 1863
 
General John Reynolds played a critical role at the battle of Gettysburg.    With General Buford's Cavalry fighting a delaying action against increasing numbers of Rebs, it was General Reynolds' 1st Corp which was the first formation of the main Union Army to arrive on the scene and stabilize the Union Line.    Shortly after deploying the lead elements of his Corps, General Reynolds was struck down by a Confederate minnie ball and killed instantly.  His heroic actions contributed greatly to saving the Union, but costing him his life, dealing a tremendous blow to the Union Army
