In 1754, Hugh Waddell left a life of destitution in Ireland and came to North Carolina to seek his fortune. He would become the highest ranking military leader in the province. In October 2007, a monument commemorating his accomplishments will be dedicated at the Fort Dobbs State Historic Site in Statesville.
Hugh Waddell did as much as probably any other individual in helping settle the differences between the Indians and whites in opening up the western part of North Carolina for settlement.
