Hull's Redezvous marker photograph
Description: caption reads: "Monument Ave at St. Clair St." William Hull was a military and political leader in the Midwest in the years after the American Revolution. In 1805, President Thomas Jefferson selected Hull as the governor of the Michigan Territory. President Jefferson directed him to secure lands from the natives residing in the American Northwest. Hull was relatively successful in acquiring the natives' land, but his actions tended to infuriate the Native Americans. This would push them to unite more closely with the British in Canada leading up to the War of 1812. View on Ohio Memory.
