Wet Way by John Buxton

 
     
 

Wet Way - Washington's Choice by John Buxton

 
     
 

In 1755, George Washington was an aid to General Braddock as they built the road toward the Forks of the Ohio. It was a southern route from Virginia and more ad vantageous , as a future trade route, to Virginia's interests and to Washington's as well. Therefore, as Washington accompanied General Forbes three years later ; again in hopes of removing French Forces from the Forks, Washington championed the southern route over Forbes developing a new inland passage. Forbes, however, did it his way and was successful in capturing Fort Duquesne. The painting title, WET WAY..., in no way suggests Washington favoring water routes -- unless it was perhaps part of the old Braddock Road.
