Brigadier General William Hull

U.S. Army (1753-1825

A veteran of the Revolutionary War, Hull proved indecisive and incompetent during the War of 1812. After a half-hearted invasion of Canada he surrendered Detroit and his army to a weaker British force commanded by the aggressive British General Isaac Brock. Hull's son, Captain Abraham Hull, fought at Chippawa and was later killed at the Battle of Lundy's Lane in 1814.
