George Sykes (1822-1880)

George Sykes was a brevet major general of volunteers in the Union Army. A West Pointer (1842) who won a brevet in the Mexican War, he earned the sobriquet "Tardy George." At Bristoe and Mine Run he lived up to his nickname and fell into disfavor with George G. Meade. Before the Wilderness Campaign, General Meade and General Grant selected a replacement for Sykes and he spent the rest of the war in Kansas.
