Winchester to Cumberland Map
The First Mountains

 
Winchester-Cumberland relief map
This map shows the terrain between Winchester, located in the Shenandoah Valley, and Fort Cumberland on the Potomac River in the Potomac highlands. This was Gen. Braddock's first experience with the terrain that would challenge his army on their march to Ft. Duquesne. The actual road is not shown, but the red dots mark the major camps along the way. Although some people refer to "Braddock's Road" as only the section from Fort Cumberland west that his army built along Nemocolin's trail, this section from Winchester was also made by his army following a packhorse trail that George Washington had used in October 1753.
