Born in Gmund May 24, 1816. Studied in Dusseldorf. Died in Washington, 1867. This battle, the first of the French and Indian war, was fought June 9th, 1775. Through Braddock's ignorance of Indian warfare and contempt for any but strict tactics, he was surprised by the concealed French and Indians, when within eleven miles of Fort du Quesne (Pittsburgh) and totally routed. The remnant of the Army was saved by the coolness and valor of George Washington, who succeeded to the command after the fall of Braddock. [P. 14.]
