'''Jan August Cichocki''' (1750–1795) was a Polish military officer and a general of the [[Polish Army]], notable for his service in the [[Warsaw Uprising (1794)]]. Thanks to a scholarship funded by [[Alois Bruhl]], Cichocki studied artillery tactics in Dresden. Upon his return to Poland, he co-authored the military reforms of 1776–1779. At the same time until May 1792 he was the commanding officer of the [[Polish 5th Rifle Regiment]] ({{Lang-pl|5. pułk fizylierów koronnych}}), after which he was the creator and the first commander of the [[Polish 15th Regiment of Foot]]. One of the commanders of the garrison of Warsaw during the [[Warsaw Uprising (1794)]], he joined the [[Kościuszko's Uprising]] soon afterwards. On June 20 [[Tadeusz Kościuszko]] promoted him to the rank of General and nominated him to the post of the commander of the Narew river front, where however he showed little value as a front commander. Dismissed to some unimportant post in Warsaw, where he died November 18, 1795, and was buried at the Holy Cross cemetery in Warsaw.
