Abandoning Fort Necessity

Washington (all of 21) suffered his first defeat at the hands of the French, 1753.

His pride was humbled, and his young ambition seemed blasted in the bud.

He abandoned Fort Necessity and began a 52-mile retreat to the English outpost at Wills Creek, early in the morning of July 4. With that retreat, “Not an English flag now waved beyond the Alleghanies.”

Nine Indian tribes contributed men to the French victory: “… nearly all the Western tribes drew their scalping knives for France.”

Gosh! This is too darn exciting!

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
