• I was born in Liverpool, United Kingdom, in 1754
  • I entered the army in 1775 and volunteered for service in America.
  • I served actively under the army leadership of Clinton and Howe, rising to the post of lieutenant colonel, commander of the British Legion, by 1779.
  • A dashing and competent officer, I nevertheless developed a reputation as a ruthless killer. This was partly due to my role as the leader of the British Calvary in the Charles Town expedition of 1780.
  • I returned to England in 1782 and, while I reached the rank of general, I never again held an important combat command.
