General-Braddock-Grave-Road

Road to Disaster
On June 25, 1755, the largest army assembled in North American up to that time passed this spot. British Major General Edward Braddock led the first 1,400 soldier of his 2,400 man army along a 12 foot wide road. Lt. Colonel Thomas Dunbar lagged behind with 1,000 men and the army's supplies. Braddock's goal of expelling the French from Fort Duquesne (present day Pittsburgh) was thwarted when his advance troops collided with a force of French and Indians.
