Defence of Brigadier General W. Hull by William Hull( Book )

23 editions published between 1814 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the end of his career and life, and for many years after, Brigadier General Hull was bitterly remembered as the officer who surrendered Detroit to the British. Because he had fallen victim to a ruse and because he did not have the support of his second in command, William Hull was found guilty of treason and sentenced to death. Fortunately, he was spared the execution but would live out the remainder of his life in infamy. In this transcript of his impassioned speech at his trial, he attempts to explain, or at least defend, his actions as not being treasonous but admirable in the defense of his troops' lives. It is a historically rare event to hear the words of the accused, and even more so when that person has been maligned. The edited transcripts enclosed offer an unprecedented look into the events at the Battle of Detroit and the national expectations for its leaders of the time
