Hulse served in Pennsylvania during the Revolutionary War as a private 1st class under Captain William Fife’s 4th Company 2nd Battalion Washington County Militia in 1782.
He also served in “Lord Dunsmore’s War” from the State of Virginia on Captain George Rogers Clarke’s Roll, and was discharged in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Lord Dunsmore’s War was named for the Royal Governor of Virginia, John Murray, 4th Earl of Dunsmore, who organized a large force of militia in response to a conflict between the Colony of Virginia and the American Indians of the Ohio Valley. The tension was the result of escalating violence between British colonists, who, in accordance with previous treaties, were exploring and moving into land south of the Ohio River, and American Indians, who held treaty rights to hunt there.
Joseph Hulse died September 18, 1821, in Clark County, Ohio.
