TimeWatch Agents - James Harrod

Today's TimeWatch recruit is James Harrod, 1700s pioneer, soldier, and hunter. He served in the French and Indian War as well as Lord Dunmore's War, and was a colonel in the local militia. He led expeditions into what is now Kentucky and Illinois, was noted for his frontiersman skills and ability with a rifle, and was generous to local Indians even though his brother and father's first wife were killed by them. There are multiple theories regarding his eventual disappearance, but we know TimeWatch found a prime recruit.
