Bejamin Warrington was a notable leader[citation needed] in 1800s Nauvoo, Illinois.[1]


Warrington was elected to the Nauvoo City Council, despite being a non-Mormon.[2][citation needed] In 1844, he was the lone member of council to vote against the destruction of the Nauvoo Expositor press.[3][citation needed]

The order to destroy the Expositor press led to Smith's arrest and ultimately, his death at the hands of a mob while awaiting trial.[4][5]
