Reynolds Family Papers - Digital Collection
Welcome to the Reynolds Family Papers Digital Collection. This collection features the digitized corresondence of brothers William and John Fulton Reynolds of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Newly transcribed military orders and war dispatches of John Fulton Reynolds are also featured, in addition to genealogical and biographical material relating to the Reynolds family.
Older brother William Reynolds served as a naval officer on the U.S. Exploring Expedition from 1838-1842, and was one of the first North Americans to view Antarctica. His younger brother, John Fulton Reynolds, had a distinguished if not abbreviated military career, serving in both the Mexican War and the American Civil War. He was killed on the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg, July 1, 1863.
This site was created with the support of a 2002 NETShare grant award. The award program is an extention of the federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), and is administered in Pennsylvania through the Department of Education, Office of Commonwealth Libraries.
