Greene, Nathanael (1742–86), American military commander in the Revolutionary War. Washington's second-in-command, he became general of the Southern army in 1780. His strategy at the battles of Guilford Court House, Hobkirks Hill, and Eutaw Springs in 1781 did not bring outright victory, but wore out the British forces.
