Biographical or historical data
The office of quartermaster general was created by an ordinance of the fourth revolutionary convention passed during its session begun on December 1, 1775. In October 1782 the quartermaster general assumed the duties of the commercial agent, whose office was abolished by the General Assembly. Although quartermasters continued to be appointed to supply the militia, the revolutionary office ceased to function soon after the Treaty of Paris was signed on September 3, 1783, ending hostilities.
