William Hull
Birth: Jun. 24, 1753

Death: Nov. 29, 1825

Politician, War Personality. Served as a Member of the Massachusetts State Senate in 1798, and 1805, and Governor of the Michigan Territory from 1805 to 1812. Also served as a Colonel in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War, and as a General in the United States Army during the War of 1812. At his surrender to the British in Detroit, Michigan, in 1812, he was found guilty by a court-martial of cowardice, neglect of duty, and unofficerlike conduct, and was sentenced to die. President James Madison accepted this decision but remitted Hull's sentence. Hull died on November 29, 1825. (bio by: K)
