April 3, 1901: Gen. Harry B. Carrington, of Hyde Park, Mass., soldier and historian, was a caller at the White House. Gen. Carrington was seventy-eight years of age, and retired from the regular army in the 1870’s because of severe wounds received in an Indian campaign. He was adjutant general of Ohio from 1857 to 1861, and while serving in that capacity made out and signed the volunteer commissions of both ex-Presidents Hayes and Garfield.general-harry-b-carrington
