About Edward Carrington


Edward Carrington (February 11, 1748 – October 28, 1810) was an American soldier and statesman from Virginia. He was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Continental Army, serving as Quartermaster to General Nathanael Greene’s Southern campaign. He commanded artillery at the Battle of Hobkirk's Hill and the siege of Yorktown.

Virginia sent Carrington as a delegate to the Continental Congress from 1786 to 1788. George Washington appointed Carrington as the first U.S. Marshal for Virginia, a position he held from 1789 to 1791. He later served as foreman of the jury when Aaron Burr was tried for treason in 1807. He was also mayor of Richmond for two terms in 1807-1808 and 1809-1810.
