THE 5TH SYMPOSIUM ON LIFE AND CUSTOMS IN WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA – March 28 – 7:00pm
Washington & Jefferson College
The Chapel at Old Main
The David Bradford House and Washington & Jefferson College are excited to present this year’s Symposium on General Braddock’s Expedition of 1755. To bring light to this subject we have invited Mr. Norman Baker to speak at the event. Mr. Baker, author of the recently published Braddock’s Road: Mapping the British Expedition from Alexandria to the Monongahela, has spent years mapping the road cut by General Braddock during his ill-fated march. Also presenting will be Mr. Bryan Cunning as George Washington from the time of Braddock’s Expedition. He has protrayed Washington in documentaries such as George Washington’s First War: The Battles for Fort Duquesne and Pursuit of Honor: The Rise of George Washington. Mr. Cuninning will recount Washington’s observations along the march, the defeat on the Monongahela, Braddock’s demise, and the plan to guard the Virginia frontier from the French and Indian threat.
