Albert Galliton Harrison (June 26, 1800 – September 7, 1839) was a three term U.S. Representative from Missouri.

Born in Mount Sterling, Kentucky, Harrison graduated from Transylvania University, Lexington, Kentucky, in 1820. He was then admitted to the bar and began his law practice in Mount Sterling. Seven years later, he moved to Fulton, Missouri.

Harrison served as member of the Board of Visitors to the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1828, and from 1829 to 1835 was a member of the commission to settle land titles growing out of Spanish grants.

In 1832, he was elected as a Jacksonian Democrat to the Twenty-fourth Congress. Harrison was re-elected as a Democrat to the Twenty-fifth and Twenty-sixth Congresses (March 4, 1835 – March 3, 1839).

Albert G. Harrison died in Fulton, Missouri in 1839. His remains were interred in the Congressional Cemetery, Washington, D.C..


Harrison County, Missouri is named for him, as is the town of Harrisonville in Cass County, Missouri.
