Deutsch: Winfield Scott Hancock (* 14. Februar 1824 in Montgomery Square, Pennsylvania; † 9. Februar 1886 auf Governors Island, New York City) war ein General der Unionsarmee im Amerikanischen Bürgerkrieg. Benannt wurde er nach dem berühmten General Winfield Scott.
English: Winfield Scott Hancock ( February 14, 1824 – February 9, 1886) was a career U.S. Army officer who served with distinction as a Union general in the American Civil War, noted in particular for his personal leadership at the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863. A military historian wrote, "No other Union general at Gettysburg dominated men by the sheer force of their presence more completely than Hancock." Hancock ran unsuccessfully for President of the United States in 1880. He was known to Army colleagues as "Hancock the Superb."
