The General was a horse owned by US President John Tyler. He was used as a warhorse during the Civil War. When he died, John Tyler had The General buried on his Sherwood Forest Plantation, in the Sherwood Forest Pet Cemetery.

The horse's epitaph reads:

"Here lies the bones of my old horse General

who served his master faithfully,
for twenty one years,
and never made a blunder,
would that his master could say the same!"
