General McGann was the leader of the Commonwealth Minutemen.


McGann was general of the Minutemen in 2240, stationed at the Castle when it was taken over by a mirelurk queen.[1] His remains can be found on the way to the armory, where Ronnie Shaw shares that he must have been trapped down here during the attack.[2] Indeed, trapped, he wrote a final terminal entry, sharing that his supplies had run out and that he had no hope of rescue.[3] Having found an old case of wine, he acknowledges that it will make his dehydration worse, but would rather meet his fate with a toast.[3]

Behind the scenes

McGann uses the standard character model, with the skin tone changed rather than appearing as a skeleton or a decomposing body.


  1. Fallout 4 loading screens: "Fort Independence was named in 1797, at a ceremony presided over by President John Adams. Before then, it was known as Castle William, and then Fort Adams. Before its destruction in 2240, the fortification served as an apt headquarters for the Minutemen."
  2. Ronnie Shaw: "That explains all the landmines. This is, well... was, General McGann. He had your job back when I first joined up. Must have gotten trapped down here when that sea beast attacked the Castle. He did manage to keep the armory secure. I'll give him that much. Rest in peace, general. Your fight is done and the Minutemen live on. No point in getting all sentimental about something that happened 40 years ago."
