Samuel Peter Heintzelman (September 30, 1805 – May 1, 1880) was a United States Army General. He served in the Seminole War, the Mexican-American War, the Yuma War and the Cortina Troubles. During the Civil War he was a prominent figure in the early months, rising to the command of a corps. Under his command, the 2nd Michigan Volunteers were responsible for the destruction and plundering of Pohick Church in Lorton, Virginia which was built, and attended by George Washington.

The World War II Liberty ship SS Samuel Heintzelman, launched on 30 September 1942, was named in his honor.  [sm]
