Henry Dearborn

American General

A doctor by profession, Henry Dearborn was another veteran of the War of Independence who failed to shine during the War of 1812.

Commander of the northern border with Canada, Dearborn failed miserably and his strategic move against his northern neighbour was a disaster.

But, while General William Hull was almost shot for his surrender of Detroit, Dearborn - his commander - was initially sacked, but almost given the job of Minister of War in 1815.

He went on to be America's ambassador to Portugal.
