Trigg's political service started around 1781 when he became a Justice of the Peace in Bedford County. He was elected to represent the county in the Virginia House of Delegates, and served there from 1784 until 1792.[1] In 1788 he represented Bedford County in the Virginia Convention that ratified the U.S. Constitution.[3] Trigg voted with Patrick Henry and the Antifederalists against ratification.[4] He served in the Virginia Senate from 1792 until 1796.[3]
He was elected in the United States House of Representatives in 1796 as a Jeffersonian Republican. Trigg was re-elected three times, and served in the Congress from 1797. He died at home on May 17, 1804, on his farm near Liberty in Bedford County and was buried in a family plot there.
