Having defected from the American Patriot cause in 1778, the Frontier Partisan Simon Girty became a successful operative and agent of the British Indian Department, rallying native warriors and accompanying them in raids and major expeditions against the American frontier. Though he worked to save American captives, a black legend would evolve around his name, making him the most hated man on the frontier.
