Archibald Hunter Arrington

Archibald Hunter Arrington (* November 13, 1809 in Nashville, Nash County, North Carolina; † July 20, 1872 ibid ) was an American politician (Democratic Party), who represented the state of North Carolina in the U.S. House of Representatives and in the Konföderiertenkongress.

Archibald Arrington first attended school in Hilliardston and later the College in Louisburg. He studied in the sequence, although the law, but not subsequently worked as a lawyer but was working as a planter. In 1840 he was elected for the Democrats in Congress, where he served for a re-election on 4 March 1841 to 3 March 1845. In 1844, he competed unsuccessfully for a further term.

As a supporter of the Confederacy in 1861 Arrington took part in the secession convention of his home state. He won election to the House of Representatives of the first Konföderiertenkongresses, then failed but again the attempt to re-election. After the Civil War in 1866 he was a delegate to the National Union Convention in Philadelphia. He then took a few more offices at the local level in Nash County, before he sat down on his plantation to rest. Archibald Arrington was the uncle of Congressman Archibald Williams.
