About this Item

First edition. Scarce. Dark brown blindstamped cloth with spine lettered in gilt. 482 pp. Deaccessioned from a state library but with no internal markings to indicate such (the library name is blindstamped on the front and rear boards). The "Revolutionary Services" portion was written by Hull's daughter using his manuscript diaries, letters and notes. The section on the War of 1812 was authored by his grandson. Significant foxing to the preliminaries and title pages as well as the final few leaves, gradually diminishing so that most of the text is clean and bright. Binding is damaged with the top half of the spine strip missing, making this a strong rebind candidate. Connecticut native William Hull, a Yale graduate, fought in several major Revolutionary battles, eventually rising to the rank of lieutenant colonel and being singled out by Washington and Congress for his service. In 1805, Jefferson named him Governor of the Michigan Territory and he negotiated a key treaty with the Indians of the region. He reluctantly accepted a commission as Brigadier General in the War of 1812 but his period of command was not a success as he started then abandoned a n invasion of Canada and was later forced to surrender Detroit to the British. As a result, Hull was court martialled and sentenced to be shot but was pardoned by Madison. Bookseller Inventory # E6798
