I got A.

What about the Native leaders and Joseph Brant are you comparing? --- Having lived in two worlds.

A) Best answer. Compares the fact "Joseph Brant lived in two worlds" to his contemporaries

B) "living" is incorrect as it's past. Use "lived"

C) "many another...leaders" is incorrect

D) same error as in B

E) same error as in C

the purpose of the orginal sentence is two demonstrate what is meant by " living in two worlds" . B and C seem to distort this purpose.
D and E distort the original meaning.
I'm left with A ...nothing wrong with it.

A seems okay

C Like many another is not idiomatic
D As with is not correct
E ditto

I'll go with A

Like over as... Both parts of the sentence, before and after the semicolon, are grammatically correct.

Another vote for A.
