Revolutionary War Continental Army Officer, New York City Mayor. He served in the Revolutionary War as private secretary and Aide-de-Camp to General George Washington from 1781 to 1783. Prior to that, he was an aide to Major General Benedict Arnold at the time when General Arnold tried to turn over the military post at West Point, New York to the British. Colonel Varick was falsely rumored to be involved in the scheme, and was for a time ostracized member of the Army until Washington exonerated him and made him his aide. He served as Mayor of New York City, New York from 1789 to 1801.
