Who was George Mercer?

George Mercer, a native of Virginia, worked as a surveyor before joining the provincial First Virginia Regiment during the French and Indian War.  Serving with George Washington, Mercer was wounded during the battle at Fort Necessity, after which he rose to the rank of captain. Mercer ultimately reached the rank of lieutenant colonel and served as commander of the Second Virginia Regiment.
