A list of retired U.S. Army Generals is listed at the U.S. Army Center of Military History website and on Wikipedia Commons. The military history website provides different categories, though does not list all generals.

The U.S. Army Center of Military History provides a limited list of U.S. Army generals. It also lists notable generals, such as the first female general and first African American general. It also lists the Five-Star generals, like George C. Marshall and Douglas MacArthur.

Wikipedia Commons provides a more extensive list of U.S. Army Generals, dating all the way back to the 18th century. The list is separated into 18th century, 19th century, 20th century and 21st century categories. It lists each general’s name with his picture. If a Wikipedia page is available for that general, the corresponding name also links to the page.

Some generals include Benedict Arnold in the 18th century, William Rosecrans in the 19th century, Jeanne Holm in the 20th century and David M. Rodriguez in the 21st century. Clicking on a name, when possible, directs the user to a Wikipedia page that lists the person’s name, birth and death dates, and information on the person’s history with the U.S. Army.
