The March to Bushy Run by Matt Wulff

 
       
  $15.00  
     
 

Henry Bouquet's Destiny bookIn response to the uprising known as "Pontiac's Rebellion", General Amherst order two relief expeditions to march to Fort Pitt and Fort Detroit in an efort to force the enemy to lift their sieges of the posts. For the relief of Fort Pitt, Amherst chose Colonel Henry Bouquet. With a small army of British regular troops, a group of Virginia packhorse drivers, and a small company of Maryland rangers, Henry Bouquet set off to relieve Fort Pitt.

On the 5th of August, 1763, Colonel Bouquet intended to march his men about 17 miles before letting them fall-out and refresh themselves in a nearby creek before making a nightime march in order to avoid a possible enemy ambush. The place he planned to stop was called "Bushy Run", and although he did not know it at the time, Henry Bouquet was marching towards his destiny...

This book, containing numerous first person entries, chronicles Bouquet's early military career and his arrival in North America where he participated in the 1758 Forbes Campaign and the fateful Battle of Bushy Run during Pontiac's Rebellion.

Paperback, 2014, 6" x9", 218 pages, b/w maps, photographs, illustrations and period documents. $15.00.
