book is a selection of primary sources (particularly letters) describing
the happenings during the years 1728-1759 in Northwestern Pennsylvania
and gives much credible evidence on the region's connection to the
making of America. This book is not meant as a history of the region
but rather a collection of raw materials from which the history
was written. It was from this Upper Ohio Valley wilderness that
a new republic had its roots and a new nation was founded: the USA!
One of the most complete collections of key documents and correspondences
relating to the French & Indian War and Pontiac's War available
to the public.
