Virginia Frontier near Monongahela River, Pennsylvania – In an area south of present day Pittsburgh, PA, British General Edward Braddock is shot and later dies when a column of soldiers he is leading is ambushed by French soldiers and their Indians allies. Braddock was sent from England to command a combined task force numbering about 2,000 men composed of British Regulars and colonial troops. His army was to march to Fort Duquesne (today Pittsburgh) and force the French to surrender it to British control. Accompanying him as an advisor was Lieutenant Colonel George Washington of the Virginia militia. After Braddock and about a third of his force was killed, Washington assumed command. Showing great skill he withdrew the balance of the force with little additional loss. His actions brought him great renown in the other colonies and helped formulate a ‘national’ recognition of his abilities as a military leader which would later lead to his appointment as Commander-in-Chief ofthe Continental Army during the Revolution.
