In 1755, George Washington acted as an aide de camp to British General Edward Braddock as the British attempted to retake the Ohio Country from the French. Although the expedition itself ended in disaster for the British and colonial forces, the campaign provided an opportunity for the young Washington to distinguish himself in battle. Three years later, when Scottish general John Forbes began to plan his own campaign to take Fort Duquesne, he called upon Washington for assistance. Washington suggested they attack via a southerly route, but Forbes insisted on developing a new passage inland instead. Fortunately, Forbes had made the right decision and successfully eradicated the French. Washington's Scout depicts an officer and two of his men investigating a possible route for what would become Forbes' road. - JB

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
