The Monongahela river    
  9 July 1755    
     
 
British briefing:
In order to secure the Ohio river valley for British Crown-subject settlers in the expanding American colony, General Braddock was sent to confront the French. With him was General Washington who had been forced to surrender to the French on a similar previous mission. On 9 July 1755, their force has crossed the Monongahela river and is closing in on Fort Duquesne. Braddock knows that the fort will not hold out long against the British artillery, and so expects the French commander to try and stop him on the way there.
