U.S. Congressman, Judge, Attorney, Union Civil War Officer. Born in Batavia, Clermont County, Ohio, he attended the common schools and later graduated from Farmer's College in 1855 near Cincinnati, Ohio. Hulick operated the Pleasant Hill Academy for a couple of years while studying law before being admitted to the bar in 1857. He practiced as an attorney in Batavia until the Civil War began. Hulick answered President Lincoln's call for volunteers and promptly enlisted for three months' service as a Private with the 22nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry on April 14, 1861. He was mustered into Company E and soon became an Orderly Sergeant. Hulick was elected as the company's Captain by the time his term expired. During his brief stint in the war, his regiment was primarily used to guard railroads against guerrillas in western Virginia and never participated in any major engagements. Hulick returned to his legal profession in Ohio and was elected as a Probate Court Judge in Clermont County in 1864. He presided for three years and then served on the Board of Education for nine years. He was also a delegate to the Republican National Convention in 1868. Elected as a Republican to represent Ohio's 6th District in the United States House of Representatives, he served from 1893 to 1897. Although reelected in 1894, he was an unsuccessful candidate for reelection in 1896. Hulick died in Batavia in 1907 when he was 74 years old.
