By Katie Lange: Medal of Honor Monday: Army 1st Lt. Arthur MacArthur Jr.

Lieutenant General Arthur MacArthur, Jr., (June 2, 1845 – September 5, 1912) was a United States Army general. He became the military Governor-General of the American-occupied Philippines in 1900 but his term ended a year later due to clashes with the civilian governor, future-U.S. President William Howard Taft.

His son, Douglas MacArthur, was one of only five men promoted to the five-star rank of General of the Army during World War II. In addition to their both being promoted to the rank of general officer, Arthur MacArthur, Jr., and Douglas MacArthur also share the distinction of having been the first father and son to each be awarded a Medal of Honor.
