dc.description.abstractContains a brief article on the outcome of the trial of Gen. Hull, concerning the capitulation of Detroit to the British under Gen. Brock (p. 684). It is stated that “Hull’s [trial] had been decided against him, on charges of ‘Treason and cowardice in the affairs of Malden and Detroit, neglect of duty and unofficerlike conduct, & c.’ Two thirds of the Court concurred in finding him guilty of all the charges except that of treason, and sentenced him to be shot to death, with a recommendation, however, to mercy, on account of his advanced age and revolutionary services. The President confirmed the sentence, but remitted the execution…Whilst Hull, far from acknowledging this lenity as a favour, published an appeal to the people on the persecution and injustice which he contended he had undergone”. The Gentleman's Magazine and Historical Chronicle was a monthly periodical published in England during the years of 1736-1833. The volumes of interest from 1812-1815 were written and compiled by Sylvanus Urban, Gentleman. These volumes were Printed in London by Nichols, Son and Bentley at Cicero's Head, Red Lion Passage and Fleet Street.
