Learn about the presenter’s two heroic grandfathers, Sir William Wallace and William Henry Haskell. One was hailed and celebrated for his heroic act, the other recognized as a hero in his native country of Scotland but reviled and subsequently brutally murdered in England. Sir William Wallace (the presenter’s 18th great grandfather) led the Scottish resistance against English rule in the late 13th century. Depicted as the main character in the movie Braveheart, he is considered a Scottish national hero. William Haskell (the presenter’s great grandfather) was a hero in the great Chicago fire, who used his skills as a professional acrobat to help save the south side of Chicago from being destroyed.
