Ronald Alger is a minor character mentioned in Red Dead Redemption 2.


First Lieutenant Ronald Alger was Union soldier stationed at Fort Brennand.

According to a written report from Alger, on May 8th, 1863, the fort was attacked and destroyed by Confederate Army soldiers under the leadership of General Quincy Harris. Alger states that survivors were being executed and their bodies burnt; it is likely but not confirmed that Alger was also found by Confederate soldiers, and subsequently executed by them.


  • The layout and location of Fort Brennard, as well as Alger's report on what happened after the fort fell, mirrors the real world Battle of Fort Pillow.
