This is the story of one of the biggest Indian victories in North America. The French and many different Indian tribes decisively defeated a larger British army led by General Edward Braddock in 1755 in western Pennsylvania, during the French and Indian War.
Among the British ranks was a young officer from Virginia named George Washington. In this war Washington gained valuable military experience, which would enable him to become commander-in-chief of the American army in the Revolutionary War.
Famous people such as George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Gage, and Daniel Boone-- all involved with the Braddock Expedition-- would be changed forever and would distinguish themselves further in the decades to come.
