General-Braddock-Grave-Road

July 9, 1755
Braddock's army is defeated by the French and their Indian allies at the Battle of the Monongahela near Fort Duquesne. Braddock is mortally wounded and dies on July 13 during the British retreat. He is buried in the middle of Braddock Road about one mile West of Fort Necessity.

Why was he buried in the road? So that, as the troops and wagons passed over the grave, all trace of its location was lost and his body would not be found by the Indians and possibly defiled
