Along Laurel Ridge by John Buxton

In this, John Buxton's first print, we see troops of the British Royal American Regiment seeking a moment of sanctuary from exhaustion and thirst. It is September 1758 along the high ledges of Laurel Ridge approaching Loyalhanna Creek, where Fort Ligonier will eventually be constructed.

An army commanded by General John Forbes with his Second-in-Command Lieutenant Colonel Henry Bouquet are constructing an inland road through the Pennsylvania wilderness. Their objective is to capture the French stronghold located at the forks of the Ohio River known as Fort Duquesne. This "Forbes Road" was a different route than that made by Braddock's army which was unsuccessful in its attempt to remove the French from the Fort three years earlier. The Forbes Road however was successfully completed and led to the eventual reward of capturing Fort Duquesne.
