The Introduction

Fort Niagara played an essential role in the colonial period as an intersection between nations and people. Men of distinction, such as Captain David Hill, cut an impressive figure when engaged in special occasions. Hill offered his hand with grace and distinction to the young Miss Powell. Native leaders who worked closely with Europeans learned how to move between the two worlds with grace. Hill made quite an impression on the young Miss Powell as she recorded in her diary that he bowed with more grace than the Prince of Wales and appeared like a hero from the pen of Homer.
