Born of a Mohawk father and an escaped-slave mother, John ‘Daddy’ Hall was a product of not one but two oppressed peoples. His gripping story is the stuff of legends—of the War of 1812, of the harsh realities slavery and of triumph in the face of adversity. Over the course of his 117-year life, Hall identified as a freeman, a British scout under Chief Tecumseh, a captured slave, an escapee on the Underground Railroad, a town crier and a father to an impressive number of children.
