Both Braddock's epic march and subsequent destruction are brought to life by Thomas E. Crocker in Braddock's March, his impeccably researched account of an important but largely forgotten chapter in American history...It all adds up to a stirring tale."--Washington Times In 1755, Major General Edward Braddock was sent by Great Britain on a mission to drive France from the New World. Accompanied by the largest expeditionary force ever sent to North America, Braddock planned to seize Fort Duquesne and then march north to Canada. Braddock was joined on the expedition by George Washington and others who would later play roles in the future revolution, including Horatio Gates, Thomas Gage, and Charles Lee; among those driving the wagons were Daniel Boone and Daniel Morgan. Less than a day's march from Fort Duquesne, Braddock's exhausted column was annihilated by a combined French and Indian force. Braddock himself fell mortally wounded, while George Washington miraculously escaped harm. With this battle, North America was drawn into a global war between Britain and France. In Braddock's March: How the Man Sent to Seize a Continent Changed American History, Thomas E. Crocker uses a wealth of sources to tell the story of one of the most important events in the American colonial period.
