John Graves Simcoe: I briefly commanded British forces here in 1797, sent there to quell a major slave rebellion. The duty caused great conflict for me, since I had spent much of my political career as Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada (a post I would resign in the next year) seeking to abolish slavery, which I had always thought a great evil. The campaign was unsuccessful, and the slave leaders won their freedom. The British subsequently decided to end their slave-trade with the colony of Haiti. I returned to England from the campaign defeated, and, most likely, quite pleased about it.
