Following the passage of the Quebec Act in 1774, he was appointed Lieutenant Governor of Detroit, where he led the King's 8th Regiment.
From Detroit, he directed the Indians during the American Revolutionary War.
From there, he was Lieutenant Governor of Quebec, then Governor, from 1782 to 1785.In Bermuda and Dominica, the largest of the British Caribbean territories, he was very much a diplomat.In Dominica, most of the inhabitants there regarded him as the savior from the French who several times tried uprisings.In every way, he was a very good, capable, honest, efficient and trustworthy bachelor Governor.It is not well known, even by locals, that the city motto "Hamilton Sparsa Collegit" - as shown on the commemorative coin above -is not directly about the city but about how Governor "Hamilton had brought together the scattered." Later, he was Governor of the much bigger (more than ten times the size) but less populated Caribbean island of Dominica in the Leeward Islands (not to be confused with the Spanish-speaking Dominican Republic).His great grandfather was Sir Frederick Hamilton, Baron Paisley and Governor of Ulster, a position which necessitated a change of residence from Scotland to Ireland for the family and resulted in Henry's birth a century later.
