Ohio native Daniel H. Reynolds moved to Lake Village (Chicot County) in 1858 and established a law practice. When the Civil War broke out, he enlisted in the First Arkansas Mounted Rifles, in which he eventually rose to the rank of colonel. He fought in many of the battles in the western theater and was promoted to brigadier general in 1865. Just weeks before the end of the war, he received a wound at the Battle of Bentonville in North Carolina, which resulted in the amputation of his left leg. After the war, he returned to Lake Village, where he died in 1902.
