HANGER, George (LOAD COLEAINE), English soldier, born in 1750; died in London, 31 March, 1824. He was the younger son of a noble family, and was educated for the army. He served through the American Revolution, became a major in Tarleton's legion, and was wounded in an action with Major W. R. Davie's dragoons at Charlotte, North Carolina, where his corps was roughly handled. Hanger's reputation in America was that of a sensualist. He was a boon companion of George IV., and, on succeeding to his title in 1814, refused to assume it. He published a reply to Lieutenant Roderick Mackenzie's " Strictures on Colonel Banaster Tarleton's History of the Southern Campaigns of 1780 and 1781" (1789), and other tracts on military subjects, his own "Life, Adventures, and Opinions," with a portrait of himself hanging by the neck (London, 1801); and "Lives, Adventures, and Sharping Tricks of Eminent Gamesters" (1804).
