Nathanael Greene (7 de agosto de 1742, Potowumut - 19 de junio de 1786, Mulberry Grove) fue un general estadounidense.

Trabajó en la legislatura colonial y como comandante de la milicia de la colonia (1775). Lideró las tropas del Ejército Continental en Boston y Nueva York, después luchó en las batallas de Trenton, Brandywine y Germantown.

Reemplazó al general Horatio Gates como comandante en jefe del ejército sureño (1778) y su estrategia debilitó de tal modo a las tropas británicas que el general Charles Cornwallis abandonó los planes de conquista de Carolina del Norte (1781). Greene comenzó la reconquista del interior de Carolina del Sur y a finales de junio de 1781, había forzado a los ingleses a retroceder hasta Charleston. Presidió en el consejo de guerra de John André durante el incidente de Benedict Arnold (1780).
