Isaac Hull was Born in Derby, New Haven County, Conn. At an early age, he chose a seafaring life and engaging in the merchant service he became after a time, the master of a shiP. In 1798, he recieved the appointment of a Lieutenant in the United States Navy. In 1800, he distinguished himself by cutting out the French letter-of-marque Sandwich, then lying in the harbor of Port Platte, in St. Domingo. In the Tripolitan war he was promoted to the rank of Master-Commandant, and in 1806 he was made a Captain. During the war with England in 1812-1815, while he commanded the frigate Constitution, his skill and heroism gained him high renown. He died at Philadelphia, Pa., Feb. 13, 1843, aged 68.
