John Milton Brannan (July 1, 1819 – December 16, 1892) was a career American Army officer who served in the Mexican–American War and as a Union general in the American Civil War, in command of the Department of Key West in Florida and assigned to Fort Zachary Taylor. His first wife was the daughter of Colonel Ichabod Crane; she mysteriously disappeared after taking a ferry from Staten Island to Lower Manhattan and was presumed to have been murdered.

At the outbreak of the Civil War, Brannan was appointed a brigadier general of volunteers and placed in command of the Department of Key West. Brannan was placed in command of the Department of the South and served as department commander until January 1863.

In 1863 he led an infantry division under Major General Rosecrans and fought under Maj. Gen. Thomas during the Chickamauga Campaign in the XIV Corps. At Chickamauga, Brannan lost 38 per cent of his command. From October 1863 until June 1865, Brannan was chief of artillery of the Department of the Cumberland. He was appointed a brevet major general in both the regular army and in the volunteer forces for Gallant and Meritorious Services in the Atlanta Campaign and in the Field during the Rebellion.

After the Civil War, Brannan mustered out of the volunteer forces and reverted to the regular army rank of major with the 1st U.S. Artillery Regiment. While at Ogdensburg, he helped prevent the Fenian raids into Canada. In 1877, Brannan was in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he helped put down the railroad riots. Brannan transferred to the 4th U.S. Artillery Regiment in 1877. He retired from the army with the rank of colonel on April 19, 1882. He then moved to New York City.

Brannan died in New York and was buried at Woodlawn Cemetery. He was reinterred at the West Point Cemetery.
