In an American court room who represents the government?

I was in a federal courtroom the other day and they asked if the government objected to something and I was just wondering who exactly is there representing the United States of America?

    The Attorney General and his army of state attorneys (disctrict attorneys) represent the government in the court of law. The general himself in courts involving the federal government and state attorneys for smaller cases.

    The lawyers who represent the US in court are called United States Attorneys. (More usually, of course, an Assistant US Attorney)

    To the posters above.... District Attorney's represent a State in court. US Attorneys represent the Federal government.
