Fort Necessity Fort Necessity National Battlefield
In the wooded glen not many miles away and here on this "charming field for an encounter", Lt. Col. George Washington started it all.  Shown here is a reconstruction of the small fort where Washington offered his only surrender to a foreign power.  It was the beginning of the French and Indian War in North America that necessitated the sending of Gen. Edward Braddock and two regiments of British regulars to finish what the colonials had started. When Col. Washington passed by here with Gen. Braddock in 1755 the bones of some of the men killed in '54 were still lying parched on the ground.
